CD: Flying South

Carpe Diem #307 ~ Kari (Goose)




geese depart to south
who gets to lead the V first?
and who is wing man?

***

geese flying south
one of nature's mysteries
a sight to behold

  1. def interesting the habits or inner programming of some animals...like the birds...so attuned with nature...moving south...and how they take turns leading when one tires...

  2. It's really a mystery why and how the geese know that they have to go ... and that V-formation is always greata to see ... as a kind of cursor to the way they go.

  3. There are some mysteries that I love. Geese in a flying V is one of them.

  4. Whoever leads, it's always "follow the leader"!

  5. I picture the geese having a meeting to discuss positions on the long flight!

  6. I never understood the strength the bird at the front had to have until I started cycling seriously. I doubt if the younger birds could do it as the lead had to fight the head wind and pull those behind
    they make it look effortless
