Turtle Cove - February 23, 2014 - Geese on Ice: Forebearing the Freeze
This was yet another cold, cold morning in this seemingly endless winter. It is a bright morning however, and vibrant blue shadows are cast across the snow and ice. A flock of geese is settled in near the south end of the main pond which is entirely frozen over. A few seem to be picking at something in or on the ice, what, I don't know. Sadly, I notice a goose closer to me at the northern end which must have lingered too long seated on the ice. It was frozen in place and has died.
