Somewhere to the south, there are wild orchids raising their heads and fields of grazing geese, but not here and certainly not for some time.
Reading the above line on Kerrdelune's blog brought back memories of this past weeks trip to the Wildlife Refuge. It wasn't the orchids, and the geese were not grazing anywhere around me. But the massive flights of honking geese that flew over my head for the better part of an hour were amazing. The photo below cannot do justice to the awesome sight of thousands of geese in the air at one time. Wave after V shaped wave passing over to the left and right. Coming from the southwestern horizon and vanishing to the northeast.
If you haven't visited at Beyond the Fields We Know take a minute and wander up there to the far north where winter did come...
