Sneaking Up on Me

Things are changing fast around here. My yard looks different in the afternoon than it did in the morning. Every time I look out the window, there is a new surprise. I know it is spring time, but new leaves and blooms still sneak up on me.
Today, pedaling downhill into a headwind, I had that creepy feeling. That creepy feeling like someone was sneaking up on me. Then movement caught the extreme left edge of my field of vision. Startled, I glanced left.
Silently, and just 8 feet off the ground, two large geese flew beside me just beyond the fence on the left side of the road. Their flight was smooth, silent, and appeared effortless. Moving faster than me, they glided down the hillside parallel to the fence. Then simultaneously, they banked left, rose gradually, and disappeared over the ridge.
No honking.
Sneaky.

  1. Great post. There have been a few times where I swore I could see things blooming before my eyes.The goose incident is very cool, I have had similar encounters with various birds, and joining them in flight momentarily can be quite rewarding.

  2. I see geese flying low by my house often. Usually, however, they have their honkers going. I pause whatever I'm doing and watch them glide by. One of the delights of living where I do.The old bridge structure is not near Rosston. In is a few miles west of Sanger. It appears to have been moved only a few feet from it's former location where a new concrete sits instead.
