It’s been awhile since I have observed Canada Geese on our local lake but yesterday afternoon I spotted a flock bobbing in the waves along the western shore.
Motoring across the lake I turned toward the geese knowing full well that the lighting was all wrong but still hoping for a useable shot during take-off.
The geese were more skittish than they were back in the spring. I expect that the early Canada Goose season that has been in since the first of the month has much to do with their wariness nevertheless I was able to get off a couple of frames as they exploded into flight.
Later towards evening I located a little pied-billed grebe that disappeared into the high reeds along the shoreline. This was the first pied-billed grebe I have observed since May.
