Canada Goose 9/23/10

I pulled over along the shoulder by Eel Pond in Rye the other day to photograph a family of Canada Geese swimming against the light. Then this one got right out of the water, crossed the road nonchalantly while stopping traffic in either direction, climbed up the over seawall and disappeared down onto Rye Beach. Honkers, especially youngsters, can be quite fearless. Here’s a photo of a younger family of Canada Geese I photographed in my Kittery Point neighborhood back in May, when the goslings were just fuzzballs.
