S(no)w geese

Just so you don't think I've completely forgotten about birds... there were a half dozen snow geese in this cornfield on my way to work the other day. I veered and stopped before realizing I didn't have the camera with me. A nice surprise so close to home, anyway.

I'm in the habit of driving slowly along this stretch of road as the apple and peach orchards tend to draw hungry deer into the road. I'd probably have missed the snow geese if I hadn't been driving so slowly... even though they stuck out like a few sore thumbs among the canadas.

The sky and clouds were gorgeous enough for a photo today. I like the bit of color visible on the young apple trees in the distance, too.

Oh, I love how the colors all mesh so well Laura. Looks like a painting instead of a photo. :c)

I agree with Jayne, it looks like a painting.

Wow, that's a really great photo. I love the sky, blue but somehow ominous and cold. Plus the water in the foreground (or is that ice?)

THAT is beautiful. You must have a lovely ride to and from work, Laura.

What a beautiful photo. It reallly does look like a painting.

Lucky you, all I see going into work are highways, factories and skyscrapers. :o(
