It Could be Called Home

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 10 April 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Canada Geese are about some of the first birds to return here in the spring. Some do not migrate very far. These two were just calmly paddling around this pond. It was as if they were looking for their new nesting site.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.
