Tuesday of this week, weatherwise, was miserable. There was rain, snow, and sleet. Female Canada Geese already on their nests were obliged to stay put and dutifully deflect all that cold moisture from their eggs. This brave lady not only had to endure the late winter elements but her nest is only a metre or two from the edge of busy road near the village of King City. We question her judgement but wish her well. Meanwhile, further along on my journey, the domestic goose below felt it had as much entitlement to the road as I did and took its time giving way, which gave me time to get its picture.
