And just moments earlier, this was the peaceful scene. Not sure why all the honking and general nastiness from the Canada Goose in the above image..
A grandmother and her granddaughter by the Allegheny River. (Unidentified subjects)
I really like the first picture. Captures a moment
Great pics, Ruth. I bet this bird’s mate is sitting on a nest just under the edge of that walkway.
I do give Grandma an A+ for recognizing the danger … and an F for using her granddaughter as a shield.
That is a perfect series of pictures. From peace to chaos.
Those birds can be pretty intimidating. Great shots!
On the other hand, as Tevye would say, I’ve always found Canadians to be such friendly folk…Great pics! Lois
They are aggressive.
Certainly appears to be being territorial Ruth. I think ChgoJohn could be right.
Those geese can be nasty! We have some that inhabit a park near our house, and they have charged me once or twice. I’m not a small child, and they still make my heart race a bit!
Oh goodness…lol. Don’t mess with the geese!
Canadian geese are like that. They’re not very nice.
