“How do geese know when to fly to the sun? Who tells them the seasons? How do we, humans know when it is time to move on? As with the migrant birds, so surely with us, there is a voice within if only we would listen to it, that tells us certainly when to go forth into the unknown.”   – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

  1. The quote is beautiful and I love the second photo! There are a couple of landing spots such as this one nearby my home. I am surprised they haven’t ventured south yet but they definitely do have their own agenda.

    Thank you. I like the one with the bird still in the air, too – I didn’t even know I’d caught him in flight until I got home and looked at the images. They were busy honking and grumbling as I got out of the car to take their pictures. I snapped fast and got back in so I didn’t disturb them. They covered the grass outside of an office park – we weren’t sure what the attraction was there. Maybe it was just the soft grass and the sunshine.

    I’m not sure where you are, but we have a LOT of those here too. They are fun to watch. It is amazing that they have all of those things that they need to survive imprinted into them. Sometimes I think that humans go the short end of the stick.
