      Great picture!

      Funny story: A lot of my family lived/lives in New England and geese were a fact of life, coming in in the spring, honking their way south in the fall. After living about 12 years in Savannah, GA, where we never saw geese, much less heard one, moved to northern IL. On one of the first nights here I woke DH up from a dead sleep, "Hear the geese?". He was not particularly pleased with me waking him up since he was a company commander training new recruits and working about 18 hours a day. It brought back so many great memories I had to share it with him thinking he would be surprised, LOL. Now it's a family joke - Hear them geese!

      Aye Fran,
      Ye story brings me back to whence me bride and I first got married. We rented a house about 1/2 mile from a large farm and the geese would fly very low o'er the house whilst on their way to feed in the corn lots first thing in the morning. The first day I heard it whist living their I thought I had died and gone to heaven, even more so whence I secured permission from the farm owner to hunt on his property. A year or so later and the place we were renting went up for sale and I bought it solely because the waterfowl hunting was so incredibly grand. T'was near 35 years ago but it seems like yesterday. Me love o' wild fowling has grown more passionate with each passing year.

      Wonderful photo. I would not have seen the ankle bracelet had you not mentioned it.

      We live not far from Grand Bend Ontario. The potato fields near there are a resting place for Tundra Swans on their way north to the far tundra. There can be thousands.

      Mr. Kleb,
      Very cool on the Tundra Swan activity in ye area. Beautiful Birds. I have jokingly told some folks that the only reason I snapped this photo was because I was shooting the band on the bird's leg. I never saw the band until I was processing the image.

      Mike
