Slow....

I have been trying to get photos together for this post, but I keep getting detoured by the birds outside my window.  I finally saw Mr. Red-bellied woodpecker but he did not hold still long enough for me to snap a shot.  I was beginning to wonder if he existed.  Hopefully I will be able to capture him in a day or two.

Anyway the other day when we were getting ready to go to Sarah's house, we were actually getting in the Rav and I heard geese.  I kept looking all around, and finally glanced in the right direction to see these.  You need to click to expand the view...


Snow Geese!

  This is a first for them to fly over our house.  Well, at least the first I have seen them.  I was so excited to see them.  I snapped a couple shots before we left.

I am working and working making the last border for my crumb quilt.  I searched through my scraps to find pieces big enough for me to get 5 ½ inch strips from...have cut and cut and cut.  Hopefully in the not too distance future I can at least have a finished top to show.  I am about afraid to say that cause things have a way of happening and delaying my progress.

How interesting that they don't appear to fly in a V-formation.

Keep working on the quilt, Rose, so we can see it. :)

It almost looks like they are trying to write something in the sky!
I hear Canada Geese often but rarely make it outside fast enough to capture them. You did well!

Dee said...

Linda Gross said...

Wow, so many snow geese! I am glad that you saw them!

Very exciting to have them fly over the house! At first look I thought it was an artsy photo of a Mom elephant and her baby that had been placed against the blue background...then I saw they were geese! Hope they aren't flying to Africa! :-)
