Fooled for a Moment

I went to the park to see how the ducks and geese are faring . Although there has been a significant decline in the population, some have been strong and managed to avoid being chased away despite various tactics by the bird police – definitely a case of survival of the fittest. 

I got very excited when I drove into the park and  saw a swan in the pond, thought that maybe it was visiting from the adjacent golf course. I got out and approached slowly , taking photos with my zoom lens, as usual. It didn’t move much, just drifted in a circle….

I guess swans are enemies of geese.What next? Bring in the coyotes?

  1. I did not know swans and geese are enemies – how interesting. This shot is so serene — i love the hue of green reflected from the trees onto the lake. ~ So much love, Robyn

    • I do find the reflections so interesting here, especially with the change of the light at various times of day and the change of the seasons.There is always something new.

  2. It is why you see swans on big estates.

    • especially since the swan is not real, but yes the reflections are beautiful, not messed up with the fluff from the trees.
