Geese Go Waterskiing!

Toward the end of my hike yesterday I heard the strident honking of nearby geese and pulled out my camera to see if I could catch their flight. I snapped frantically, then stopped, sad that I had missed not only the flight but their whimsical landing. Three of them left beautifully synchronized sprays and looked as if they had planned a celebratory waterskiing finish. Later, when I developed the film, I found this picture and cropped it to share with you. Look. I got it after all, or at least the beginning of it. If I remember right the spray trails were much larger and more impressive, but see how they are actually skidding over the pond surface?

Now we know how they entertain each other when they think no one is looking.
