Snow Geese

I was out and about last week when I came across these guys in a large pond by the road. It was a beautiful day and I stopped to enjoy these fellas. They are Snow Geese and they are quite pretty with their orange beaks. I have only seen these geese one other time, near Seneca Lake.

Normally I am no lover of geese. They like to torment me on our pond. I try to chase them away but they laugh at me. One day there was the largest number of geese I have ever seen on our pond. In this photo even Rascal doesn't know what to do other than stare. When we had the border collie, she would try and herd them in the water.
