Great outing at Fort Whyte this past week. Had two Geese fly directly at me. I wasn't able to get any photos as it happened so quickly. Both just suddenly appeared from behind a tree. Both veered off at a distance of 20-30 feet. The second occurrence the Goose flew on directly at a woman and sort of hovered in the air about 10 feet from her face before continuing on. It was quite a sight.

There were at least two of these in each of the smaller ponds. I meant to ask what they were before I left, but, forgot.
