at a very busy intersection, this family of geese cross this road safely. I actually drove by them as they stood on the curb strip when my son spotted the mother about to step onto the road. I quickly handed ian the camera and he took this photo from the backseat. he had just one chance. so thanks ian for a great shot! and thanks geese, for looking both ways before you put your lives on the line.
it was heartening to see the traffic take notice and slow down so the geese could cross. not an easy thing for a steady stream of speeding vehicles to do - especially at this intersection.
in other news, we are still in the midst of an incredible heat wave. supposedly it should get a little cooler friday and saturday. has it been hotter than normal where you live?
