Canada Geese

In Central Park, back away from the main action is a baseball field with a wide swale around it. For the past week or so, this flock of Canada Geese has been foraging here. They summer here, raise their families and then fly south to warmer climes when autumn approaches.

This is a very iconic image of this area, and of these geese in particular. There will always be at least one goose standing tall, watching for strange activities (like photographers!) whilst the rest feed or relax.

I have to admit they seem more beautiful to me when in flight - on the ground they leave quite a mess. They are a very common sight here anywhere there is a small body of water with a clearing nearby. Watch where you step!
