Thursday Challenge; Bright

I really wanted to make a new photo for this weeks Thursday Challenge which is about "BRIGHT" (Sunny, Lights, Laser, Intense, High Key,...) but I'm down and out with the flu like a lot of people. So an old one it is;

Thursday Challenge; Machines

As someone who can't live without the stuff I immediately thought of this;

My coffee machine which makes a lot of cups of lovely cappuccino every day for me

Greylag Geese

I love geese! I don't know why but I can get really happy watching them fly over in V formation in the sky hearing them honk. I think they have a really good sense of navigation as well plus communication if they sometimes even fly at night and still can tell each other where to go and what to do!

Every Spring Greylag Geese are coming in the pond across from where I live to breed. Not only Greylag but Canadian Geese as well. In February they start to come and they stay until the young are born and ready to fly (or big enough to walk with) to other ponds or streams, which is most time June or so. I love watching them grow up and next year you know some of the young are there as grown geese.

So here are some photos I've taken over the years of the Greylag Geese near our home starting with the ones I took yesterday.

 Two Canandian Geese came too close to the happy family so dad Greylag felt the need to defend them

Thursday Challenge; Trees

This Thursday Challenge it's about TREES (All kinds,...)

There's a pond across from my home and around the pond there are lots of trees, but one tree is a bit crooked. It's been like that for years and I kinda like it like that. :)

I love trees, in any season but when it's winter and it snows and the snow stays on the trees, it's just such a beautiful sight...
