Three Canada Geese

Taking a Gander

Sometimes I think we humans can be every bit as interesting to wildlife as they are to us. Propelled by the powerful strokes of their broad feet, these Canada Geese paddled over to have a close look when we were passing by their rocky promontory.

They didn’t seem the least bit agitated or concerned, only curious. Perhaps they were looking for a handout, or maybe they were drawn by our brightly coloured kayaks. Whatever the attraction, I can’t help but wonder if they might have seen us as their fellow paddlers.

We’re off the grid for most of the summer, with only occasional access to the internet. I welcome your comments – but it might be awhile before I can reply.

  1. Very nice, Laurie! Great to photograph them “at their level”. Most of the wildlife I’ve encountered are, indeed, just as curious of us as we are of them – and it is very gratifying to have them approach us. I’m sure these geese sensed you were peaceful, fellow paddlers and came to check you out. You lead a good life, Laurie – and that’s fantastic! Enjoy the summer.
