Snow Geese...

There have been a lot of snow geese in the area lately, as they spend their winters in the warmer areas of North America before flying north to the Arctic to breed in the spring and summer. A large flock landed in a nearby field last Saturday (18th February) and this afforded me the opportunity to see these creatures quite close. I was able to take some good photos, too. :)

 They feed on any scraps left in the field.
 They covered part of the field like a layer of snow.
