Onondaga Goose

It's been such a long hard winter that it's hard to believe this happy goose was strutting along the pond next to Onondaga Parkway just a few months ago. Many people travel down this road oblivious to some of the natural beauty along the sides. One day while driving home from work, I happened to notice the goose family enjoying the bright summer evening. Fortunately, I was able to pull over and watch them playing in the pond. This one held her head high as I snapped her portrait. Here's hoping spring is not far away.
