Urge to Merge
The splashing in the last post did not stop there. While i was distracted by the reflections and geese drinking at the edge of the puddle, I heard a big splash and saw that two were copulating. I was focused on keeping them in the frame and did a good job, in my opinion. Just when you are not looking, they are at it.This is the same gander that was splashing earlier.
If explicit content bothers you, don’t look.
Congrats on catching the action Jane!

It’s that time now, isn’t it? For birds and alike. Very nicely captured. And a great little series of life in a pond.

It’s that time of the year. The wild turkeys in the Smokies are strutting their stuff (so to speak) as well.

I guess this makes me a voyeur of some sort, but find it very interesting behaviour.

Nature’s bonding and mating brings excitement to Spring! I’ve seen many a duck mating, but this is my first of Canada Geese. Very interesting to me too! Thank you for sharing, Jane. And no we are not voyeurs of some sort…..are we? LOL

I guess those days are coming to an end I will have to go further afield because if you see in my most recent post , the university and city are chasing them out.
