In the middle of the Connecticut river the geese were taking a nap, heads under their wings. Seemed like an easy way to get closer for some images.
When I got around the snow pile I found competition.
One watched me, staring intently. You can see in the main picture above he kept his attention on me.
The other tried to work his way up the river bank and around for a better path to the geese between us. I looked for others on the bank but none were in sight.
There was open water between us, but it was interesting to see how they worked together. They didn’t really seem all that concerned about me, the geese were important.
Did I mention there was open water between us?
As the snow and wind picked up, and I was still there, they climbed back up the bank and left.
What a great unexpected gift.
