So the back of our land borders a very large pond. Many animals visit us at different times of the year just because of the water. Now it is the turn of the Geese to make their way south by stopping off here at Brambleberry Lane. The only problem with this is every time I go to take their picture they take off on me. And there is not just a couple. On a slow day there is a minimum of 1000 geese at any given time just floating along. In the evening they drop from the sky in droves and the sound could make you loose your hearing it is so loud out there. But we love to watch them every year.

They fly so low over our home and our Choc. Lab is not happy with that fact at all.

It may be a little hard to see here, but this is me getting to close to them this morning and the entire pond lifting off and taking flight. I am not going to hurt them but they won't let me get close enough to tell them that. Growing up I could never understand why the wild animals that lived around our house in the woods didn't want me to hug them. And yes, here in my 30's I am still wondering the same thing. They are so beautiful and all of the animals that travel our back yard are a joy. Well, that is, except for the FOX FAMILY, they can just keep moving on!
