I took this picture in Whitehall with my friend Lisa. The swans were off in the distance but Lisa managed to score some bread from someone on a docked boat and bribed the swans over to us. The funny thing is that once they were right up to where we were she kept warning me, “I didn’t know they would get this close! Don’t let the dad get too close! I mean it Ann, he’s getting awful close, see how he’s looking at you. Oh! I’m not kidding you, watch it!!!” Apparently Lisa was attacked by a goose a while back and it was not a good experience for her due to the 7 foot wingspan and bruises it inflicted.

Aren’t they pretty though?

  • I have to agree with your friend on this one. A few years ago I knew some people who lived in a farmhouse out in the boonies and they had a “watch goose”. It was a big gray goose and when you drove up it was right there at your car – if Fred or Maureen didn’t come out and call off the goose it could be pretty tough getting out of the car. It would snap at you and flap its wings. I didn’t want to tangle with it!

    Just think of what that picture could have been if I wasn’t there to warn you. It’s a big responsibility, but for you and the state of Michigan, I’ll put myself in harms way:)

    WOW, Ann these are great!!
