Canada Geese – A Reflective Landing

I captured this series one morning a few months ago.  A pair of Canada Geese had dropped down from the sky and proceeded to fly up the creek towards me…..and where the water was mirror-glass smooth.

Then a splash when they put their bodies down into the water.

Canada Geese mate for life with very low “divorce rates,” and pairs remain together throughout the year.

  1. Perfect touch down! Great photos, Donna! Having water as a background works pretty well for shots like these. 🙂

  2. Donna, this series is so beautiful! Being an airliner nut I see in your photos how we learnt to fly. The bird wingtips even have Winglets! 😍😎

  3. Awesome photos Donna! That water is definitely like glass and you got some beautiful perfect reflections in your shots.

    • Thank you, Sue! When the water is like that, I like watch for something to fly over it for a reflection. Feels good when it happens AND I didn’t mess up my focus and lighting. 😊
