A Special Gift From Nature.

Isadora," We went to one of our favourite parks for a walk and nature gave us a special gift. The snowgeese  , who spend their winters in Vancouver before returning to nest on the Arctic tundra each Spring, were landing as we entered the park. LP took photos of them as they landed all around her.  She was right in the middle of them and said it was thrilling! Duffy and I watched from the sidelines but  we found it equally exhilarating!" 

*Click to biggify these photos if you so choose*

Isadora, " There were thousands of snowgeese all around us!"

Duffy , " It was mystical! Otherwordly! Magical!"

Duffy, "We will always remember the day the snowgeese descended upon us."

                                Spectacular! Stunning! Sublime!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

  13. I've seen geese before but never any snow ones. We have snow. Just no snow geese. I wonder why.

  17. Wow, that was incredible! Maybe a bit freaky too, to be surrounded by them. Shades of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. LOL.

    Purrs and peace from the boys.
