To be honest, there was a time when I didn't like Canada geese; not even a little bit.
When I was growing up on the prairies, I loved them. I loved the way they would fill entire wetlands and blacken out the skies on their fall migration; there were so many it was impossible to count them all.
When I moved to Ontario, I started not liking them as much. They were mean, aggressive birds that pooped in the parks and made it impossible to walk without getting the stuff all over your shoes. Heaven help you if you wanted to sit and enjoy a picnic.
Now, I think I might be open to liking them again, but I'm sure that last week's campers at the Liard Hotsprings Provincial Park do not like them one bit. It's kind of hard to sleep when the sun lights up the sky well before 06:00 and the geese start honking.
I guess it's all a matter of perspective; are these shots that I took last week at the Liard Hotprings pictures of beautiful and elegant Canada geese on their northward migration, or are they pictures of irritating and obnoxious and unwanted alarm clocks that should have their necks thoroughly wrung?
I didn't camp at the hotsprings this time, so I'm going to go with "beautiful and elegant".
