Beautiful pictures!

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I heard geese run after you and bite if they don't like you. Is it true or is it just a myth?

That is very true ^^ I have been chased by many a loose goose


Those are beautiful, do happen to know what they are called? It looks like a Barnacle goose, but thats from my Birds of North America bird book.
I'm an amateur bird watcher. We get tons of the Canada geese here for the winter, I love them

My book says they are rare in the US along the east coast, but they do make it here occasionally. I've never seen one.
All the wild geese here look like this and they are only here in the winter.
