Thanks, Reed. Indeed it was.
Cute and trying to stay warm. 🙂
Our Canada Geese do the same to stay warm in chilly weather. Was it below freezing when you took this photo?
No, it was mid-30’sF. And with the breeze the chill factor was much lower.
Cold is a brrrrrrrden many of us don’t want to bear.

Geese are not as lucky as we to have nice warm shelters.
Yeah, winter returns… 😦 Stay warm, Steve!
At least those cold days are getting to be fewer, Eliza. You stay warm too. 🙂
I’d say that creature’s ‘down jacket’ was serving it well. The expression in its eye suggests it’s ready for the cold to fly, too.
It looks to me like that eye might even be frozen in the open position.
Appearances! The nictitating membrane revealed itself a few times. I worried it would hide the eye when I exposed but I managed a few clear eye shots.
The goose was much more concerned with maintaining warmth than flying off because of my proximity. He checked me out a few times but then tucked back in and did keep an eye on me the whole time.
Oh yes, I can feel it, with the goose trying to keep its beak warm. 🙂
Some mornings I’d love to be able to tuck my beak under something warm…even my armpit. 🙂
Just one … cold and alone! I’m used to seeing them in big numbers but we don’t have as many here as Back East. Nice shot!
Thanks, Denise! I don’t usually see just one either. At least they are in pairs and often larger gatherings. Although mostly stubble, there are hundreds in the corn fields lately hoping for fallen kernels.
Looks like me on any morning when I’m faced with brutally cold temps below 65 F.
Love the texture details of the feathers and that eye.
Thanks, Wally! Yeah, different places, different comforts. Around here 65° right now means shorts and flip flops. 🙂
Oh, that does look chilly! Hope it’s got a good set of warm feathers!
They are pretty good at conserving their warmth but how they can float around in such cold water astounds me, whether it is their nature or not.
It really doesn’t look like fun when it’s so cold!
