Canada Geese on Golden Water

Canada Goose flocks are starting to reach their winter numbers at my local patch. During the summer, there are usually about 50-100 geese present, as many of the geese move to other places to find breeding sites. By the beginning of autumn, the goslings have matured and the flock starts to swell with new arrivals. During the winter, about 400 geese are present on any given day.

Right now even these common geese are photogenic, at least when they pose on water that is reflecting colorful foliage.
