I wonder if these mate for life? Do you know? Canada Geese do. This group of gorgeous guys seem to be posing for you and their eyes have been caught in the stare. Good marginal space all around, sharp, well contrasted, natural colouring. The kind of image that makes one pause and slows the beating of one's heart. Nice nice nice

author says:

Thank you for the comments. Yes, from what I have read, I do believe that they mate for life.
