I heard some in the night. Geese. Flying high. I wait for this and love it. To be surrrounded by millions and millions of humans and to hear this, to me, ancient sound. Of life on the move. Of seasons heeded. Then I heard it again, five minutes ago. Doubtful at first. Construction is all around us. But steadily closer. I rushed out to the terrace, looked up, across the arc of blue sky, and found them. White! Snow geese. Heading NNW. At last, my first positive snow goose sighting. Instead of switching to manual I shot on auto, with predictable results. The camera was confused. What do you want me to focus on??? So - bad picture. I am sorry. Perhaps I'll get a second chance. I hope so.
