Incoming!

This was the view skyward in the Terra Nova neighbourhood in Richmond today. Lesser Snow Geese inbound.



They just kept on coming in their hundreds. Before long, thousands had congregated in a field behind an elementary school.


Wa-hoo!


Duck! Er, Goose!


So majestic in flight, the transition to bipedalism is awkward, enough to make one never want to land. Like when you learned to skate well enough to go fast but had no clue how to stop, and you were closing on the boards, those terrifying puck marks....

Late to the party.
