“Waiting for the ice to crack!”
Too bad I didn’t have my good camera on a recent walk, but these geese made me laugh as they were waiting for the ice to thaw. Captured these on my phone, but not too close so the quality isn’t too sharp (geese are nasty if you get too close!). They were gingerly walking around, staying near the grass and making a bunch of noise!
The next day, they were gone. Getting another couple inches of fresh snow might have been one of the reasons…
I took this on December 2nd when normally, the ground and water would be covered in snow. Even now in January, the northeast continues to have a very mild winter…hoping to get a pretty snow to photograph sometime soon!
