Snow Geese on the shore of the Great Salt Lake

*Sorry for the double post this morning, I thought the other post on Capitol Reef National Park had already been published a long time ago, but it had been marked “private”. Oh well, it IS a great place.

Spring is arriving and there have been reports of Snow Geese in the area.  I edited some Snow Geese images I took in November of last year to post today.

I love the way it looks as if this goose is grinning.

The immature Snow Goose hung close to the adult. These two geese were seen along the causeway to Antelope Island for a few days last fall.

They walked the shoreline of the Great Salt Lake. The early morning light seemed to make this adult glow.

The juvenile Snow Goose was starting to get the pure white feathers of adult plumage on its back. I wonder if by this spring it looks just like the adults.

I’m hoping to go on a “Goose Chase” this morning, the sky is supposed to be clear so there should be good light and I would be delighted to see some snow, Snow Geese that is! I’ve had about enough of the other snow for now.
