May 24 at Green Lake

Cool air and a nice breeze made today's walk great ...

I like to start with a snap just looking across the lake from
the point where I usually begin my walk.
Today, the air temp was about 55F (12.7C) and there was a
very nice breeze. Skies were mostly cloudy.

 Linking up with Skywatch Friday and thanks to Yogi♪♪♪ for hosting.

Not far into the walk ... a Canada geese family with
two new little ones. In the next snap I happened to be able
to catch one of the older goslings with one of the new ones.
The difference, is about 3 weeks ... just a guess, of course.

Update: Saturday morning May 25 ... Just took a look at Eileen's Saturday's Critters and enjoyed her pics of Canada Geese. Thought I should share my Geese pics from this post. So these will be Friday Critters on Saturday. Sort of.  :-)  Check out Saturday's Critters!

Marching onward ...
About two dozen Canadian Geese followed one leader to
the water's edge and then took flight for their morning exercise.

Lastly ...
I continue to be surprised at how these folks are up so early
and already out on the water. I guess I shouldn't be surprised
since I am up so early myself.
I am just fascinated by the level of dedication and effort
these folks put into rowing.

  All followers ... Hope you have a good weekend.


  1. Getting some nice shots today with the geese and rowers.
    Regardsing my photos I used the SX740. I gave the SX730 to my sone last year, there are both more or less the same

  2. That sky and lake looks very peaceful. I have been to Seattle a couple of years ago and I really love about it is that even if it's a big city, it's a lot more quiet than other mega cities I have visited. Happy Skywatch john!

  3. Glad to see you are out walking and continuing to enjoy nature, John. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  4. Love and love some more the Canada Geese!!

  5. We have been following a geese family too, John. Geese are great parents.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. My husband accompanies me on all the excursions and he is interested in photography but he doesn’t have a blog. He loves the walks and picnics but he would be out earlier in the day, like you are, if not for me, a 7:30 riser.

  6. An idyllic location for a walk. Nice to see all the geese keeping you company!

  7. The goslings are always a treat to see. For my part, I would like them to stay small a little longer. They are cutest at that stage.Have a great weekend. Likely will be chilly here and wet.

  8. That is a huge army of geese. I hope they're on our side!

  9. We had the same walking weather today!!!
    The baby geese are always nice to see.

  10. The geese are always there to pass a few comments as we go by.

  11. Looks like happy family of geese
    Coffee is son

  12. Hi John. Like the Canadian Geese - something we don't see here...we have Sulphur Crested Cockatoos- large parrots- which squark a lot and are very mischevious and destructive - I'd certainly trade them in on Ducks or Geese in an instant. Regards. KEV.

  13. Hello, pretty views of the lake, sky and rowers. I love the marching on photo with the geese. The goslings are adorable. You can link up as many post as you like. Wonderful photos and a great walk. Thanks for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, thank you for the comment and visit to my blog.

  14. How serene and gorgeous walk dear John :)

    you live in a heavenly area no doubt

    geese family looks so excited to join your walk

  15. Hello. Lovely photos of Canadian geese. Have a great weekend.

  16. So many geese on the march. Always nice to see.
