I'll start. I took this photo this morning at Boerner Botanical Gardens. I swear there were some geese in that photo but there were none there when I downloaded the images.

So THOSE are stealth geese. This is the first time I've ever seen them. Great shot!

Beautiful shot even without the geese. I'm always seeing things in my shot when I take the picture and when I download them they just don't seem to be there. I think my camera eats images the same way my dryer eats socks....

Why yes, they happen to be stealth geese. How did you know

Geese are aggressive. We run around and distract them while others dip their eggs in corn oil. It's a short term solution. Combined with other controls it can help.

Photo from March 2008

This one barely made it, taken March 31st last year at Northwest Trek, Near Seattle, Washington. I've resized it to 1200x800, 72ppi.
