May 4


These geese are pretty, but that's not why I took the picture.
I took it because of where this is. It kind of looks like a park, but it's not. Do you see the traffic light at the right of this shot? Yes - this is right near a road, a divided highway actually.
This is the median of that highway!
I was turning, and was so surprised to see these geese that I snapped this picture out of my side window. (There were no other cars near me)
I hope they made it back across the highway again!

I hope they made it back across too. It's funny how geese can be found in the oddest places.

Great catch, Mari!! There must have been some sort of food to attract them, hopefully they were ok....

Oh Mari Sweetie...
What a beautiful site to see. I love seeing the geese. Are they not grand? They look so proud there. Imagine that right in a center meridian.

I too have started carrying my camera everywhere I go so that I can click when I see a beautiful share. Thank you dear friend. How lovely this is. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I have seen traffic stop for our geese to cross the road with their babies!

You must have access to your camera at all times. How do you do it?? Half the time, my camera is at the bottom of my storage ottoman. By the time I get it out...it's too late.

Mari - I always have my camera with me - in an easy to reach spot in my purse. :)

I have no doubt that they made it across. Better yet, they just took off at some point and flew over the road! This was just a little rest area for a picnic on their way to wherever!

That is a beautiful median strip. There are signs around here that read, "Brake for ducks." I like that!

We're thinking alike today. I was at the grocery today and there were geese in the parking lot. :) I didn't take pictures, but I thought about it!
