The Canada Geese are back home. This is a crop from a shot when they just took off the lake and positioning for the perfect V shape formation. The Geese continue North to the nesting grounds. No Photoshop here, it’s a straight image :)

 

Here are some amazing facts about those ‘world travelers’

 

FACT -- As each goose flaps its wings it creates an "uplift" for the birds that follow. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.

LESSON -- People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.
