Geese Crossing Road

Our neighbor's geese crossing the road.

Ellebelle from Mosquito Town, Netherlands

Great picture :-)))
Crossing that road ........ probably in no hurry at all ..........
Superb depth because of the yellow line and electricity poles!!

@Ellebelle: No, they are never in a hurry. Thanks for your comment.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

They look to have stooped to argue about whether it is safe to cross or not. Here, we have 'pelican' and 'zebra' crossings . . but never a 'goose' crossing !!

27 May 2013 7:41am

@Ronnie 2¢: You are correct--they often stop in the middle to discuss which side of the road to head for, or whether the road itself is their destination. Zebra and Pelican???

Brenda from Canton, United States

Love the bored expression on the last goose - who seems to be saying "you'll just have to wait until we cross this road". Beautiful curves in the road and yellow line and the telephone poles.

27 May 2013 11:00pm

Tom Whelan from United States

Love the composition (position of the poles and the geese) and the wide angle look. Nice light as well.

Truly great.

Comme les oies du capitole elles donnent l'alerte quand une voiture arrive
Belle image et bravo

30 May 2013 4:19pm

@philmess: These geese seem not to care about cars, which must slow down and sometimes stop to let the geese move out of the way. Thank you for commenting and visiting.
