Canada Goose lifting off from a golden pond

At Golden Hour before sunset in one of the last days remaining before frost will claim the pond, this Canada Goose is among the first to form a skein threading south…

And the eruption of wings roiling water with the might required to launch these grand waterbirds skyward makes mockery of comparisons to man-craft.

Happy landings, beautiful bird, happy New Year in warmer waters and we hope to host you next Yule too.
