managed to get reasonably close before they took off. They were
separated from the other geese and looked as if they were in deep conversation.
A day at the beach for the geese.
This airplane must have just taken off from the Des
Moines airport as I wasn't far from there when I took
this picture of it.
I came across a yard with about a dozen robins
hopping around. Hoping this means spring is near.
