The Loner

Canada Goose taking flight, winter 2017

This fellow lagged most of the others in departing the freezing pond. Why, I cannot say, but it’s fun to speculate…

Maybe he’s elderly, and unable to rush off as fast as the others? Maybe he wanted one more delicious munch of grass before joining the gaggle?

Or maybe he’s just a loner, more independent-minded than the rest?

I like to think it’s the last..
