Goose Butt

I suppose a nice way to put it would be Bottoms Up!

This was a zoomed picture taken with autofocus. I couldn't even see this; it was too far away. The dog was also zooming in on them, so I pointed and clicked, in hopes of getting them as they lifted off to fly away from her. As it turned out, they couldn't have cared less if they tried. I have several shots of these fellows now, and will post some later.

Greetings! What a quaint blog! I LOVE the photos. Especially of the cats. :-)

I came across your blog from a post on http://brassandivory.blogspot.com about all the MS bloggers out there. She has a project going on to spread the word, and you are invited to take part, if you like. The same post (entitled "MS Awareness, Blogging Friends, and a little Link Love" can be found on my blog too.

As an aside, I grew up in western New York -- Wellsville, to be exact. Down on the PA border on the Genesee river. So nice to see pics from back "home".

Thanks for sharing!

Great pic of the dabbler, pb! I don't know if the Canada geese have been through our area yet or not -- probably yes, if they're already in New York...

GJ, these fellows overwintered here, so we really haven't seen the migrants just yet.

Soon we'll be seeing the high-flying formations, since they follow the Chemung and the Susquehanna Rivers.
