Geese in Flight

Today was a fun day, we went paddling. The weather was beautiful and a bit gusty, but it kept the heat away, while we paddled.
The launch area was empty, so no crowds and no crazy boaters on the lake.
We did the whole lake, going in the coves to avoid the heavy winds, when we could, so it was a nice long paddle.

The hawks were out, circling overhead, then diving down to try and catch a fish. Since it was windy and wavy today, I couldn't get any shots of them, without risking my camera;) And because of that, it was hard to get a level shot.

The leaves are just starting to turn, so the mix of colors in the trees, was breath taking.

On the opposite side near the campgrounds, we came across two geese, on a rock. They didn't want us around, so they swam off and when bill paddled ahead and blocked their exit, they gave us quite a show.
