Oh – those dizzy birds!

They rose in formation

And took off like sleek feathered jet planes.

Round and round they flew -

Not sure if they were coming or going.

(Don’t we all have days like that?)

After a while, they landed

Feeling a little wobbly on their feet.

But ready to try again another day.

For more dizzy creatures, please visit: Camera Critters.

  1. Wonderful shot of the geese taking off! I guess a few geese are still hanging around for a while! (And, yes, I have many days that I wonder if I’m coming or going.)

  4. Lately all my days seem to be like that. Your pictures are marvelous. I really like the reflections in the last one.

  5. Gorgeousness!
    Aren’t you a little bit scared of them? They are really really big :-o

    November 5, 2011 at 15:54

    • I never get too near them as they are huge! But they seem more scared of me than I am of them.

      November 5, 2011 at 15:57

  6. Beautiful formation.They must be happy because they can fly through beautiful nature things.:smile:

  8. Oh, yes! It does seem as though I’ve been wondering whether i was coming or going, so I do relate to these guys — including feeling a little wobbly on my feet ! Great captures as always!! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Enjoy!

  10. Not knowing if we’re coming or going…I thought it was only a human trait, I stand corrected ;-)
    Enjoy your week-end ladyFi

  14. Just saw a formation of geese (Swedish) flying in a southern direction… isn’t it a bit late in the year for that? Do they know something about the impending winter that we don’t?

    November 5, 2011 at 16:50

    • It’s been very very mild here, so there are still a few geese left on our lake!

      November 5, 2011 at 18:10

  15. Beautiful photos. I love the light you have achieved, especially in the latter. Greetings.

  29. Enjoyed your pics of those dizzy birds. Never thought of them as dizzy before now. **grin**

    November 6, 2011 at 00:37

  30. What a beautiful summation of my life. I don’t know whether I am coming or going AND I am more than a little wobbly. However, I am nothing like this beautiful. Loved them all. Thanks.

    November 6, 2011 at 00:40

  31. Great pics of the geese! We have them all over the place and I take them for granted but it is lovely to watch them in full flight!

    November 6, 2011 at 01:44

  32. Great capture! I hope he didn’t break his little webbed foot!

    November 6, 2011 at 02:25

    November 6, 2011 at 10:51

  46. I love the rather drunken look of the Canada Geese on landing – clever shot:-)

    November 6, 2011 at 11:23

  47. I can be a bit wobbly on my feet too and I can’t fly and can barely swim. I should have no excuses in my environment of choice!

    November 6, 2011 at 11:23

  48. beautiful motion shot! love it!

    November 6, 2011 at 11:32

  50. Sweet….
    When we lived in Colorado for years, the countryside was ‘loaded’ with Canadian Geese. I miss them….they’re not this far south.

    I can almost hear them ‘honking’. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous photos.

    Off the Pier…shadows is my link, if you’d care to view.

    Have a great day.

  51. Jen

    I was wondering where all the Canada’s went from our duck pond. And now I know they have flown over to see you.

    Tired aren’t they?

    It must be wonderful to see ducks in flight. It wouldn’t happen here in the city……. except on one occasion when 5 small ducks flew down the bottom of my garden. Obviously escaped from the city farm! They took off again quite quickly.

    Late visiting from Camera Critters. The Hopper is my critter, please drop by when you get a chance. Thanks!

    November 6, 2011 at 20:00

  60. Ha, the wobbly feet one is priceless! :)

    November 6, 2011 at 22:26

  61. Ah, and watching them on the river last week, they would startle and take off in a flurry as if I was there to do them harm… only to land 50 yards downriver where they’d repeat the action all over again. I thought, “How silly of them!” but then I caught myself thinking, “Don’t I do the same?”

    November 7, 2011 at 01:33

  62. Oh, how I’d love to see a flock of them like this! So cool!

    November 7, 2011 at 01:44

  65. Oh yeah, I have days like that! We just turned North instead of south on our roadtrip. Even the geese are smarter (as I have written in a post to be posted later this week!)

    Lovely pictures.

    November 7, 2011 at 04:11

  66. Re: Don’t we all have days like that? … Am having one now! So cute, those wobbly feet.

  67. Great images of gees in flight and landing, I too would have wobbly feet after such en devour.;) I too see these birds all the time currently as they take up to the skies – do you know if they are migrating birds? ;)
