Geese in the Marsh

I loved the shadows this morning, and the golden glow of all the dried cattails.

And, of course, the geese. Parts of the pond were open,

and other parts were frozen over. I wondered why the geese were following the leader along the dog-leg through the open water, till I watched another trying to break the ice. It was not that thick, but I weigh a lot more than a goose. He was really struggling to clear a path for his friends.

How great to have the opportunity to watch these beautiful creatures - breaking the ice for each other. Wow.

And the picture of the cattails - I don't think I've ever seen so many in one place! Amazing.
