    Ahhhh … Larry … I nearly stepped on a nesting Canada Goose lady myself just the other day!!!! Bless her heart … she was right next to our little pier … and oooo .. it was a hot day!!!! Normally, I’d say she was hissing at me … but frankly … I think she was PANTING!!!! Your girl looks much more comfy. Beautiful, beautiful image!!!!!!!!!!!!
