I was taking photos of the pond and the geese behind the hospital the other day, and enjoying the beautiful afternoon. A couple of people were throwing out bread for them. As you can see from the water, the wind was pretty strong, but warm.
[At least, I think they’re geese – they look like the photo ON THIS SITE.]
Suddenly, there was a loud sound, wings flapping, water splattering – two of them looked like they’d been tied together at their necks and thrown in the water.
Then the other ones, on the banks and in the water, got upset and started making really loud sounds. It was all very loud and startling.
One of the ladies tried throwing bread at them, but they didn’t even notice.
Eventually, they went underwater – one surfaced in the same place, the other several feet away. I guess the one who moved away lost the battle.
Then, as suddenly as all the noise started, it stopped. They went back to eating, I took more photos of them and the colorful trees and called it a day.
