For Weekend Reflections
For Scenic Sunday

This bird would not stand still -sorry I don't know the name of this bird as usual,but several of my blog friends told me it's a Canadian goose and it's surroundings  made for a great reflection. Taken in Huntington Library Gardens.

Lovely green coulors and a great reflection. The beautiful bird is a Canadian Goose :) Have a nice weekend!

The Huntington Library Gardens seem to be a great source of inspiration to you. It's where you find a lot of beauty. I wished I had paid better attention when I was there. I think I was too young to appreciate it properly and I had two little kids with me who were impatient. Maybe I'll go back in another life.

I don't know what it is either, but I like the pic!

Carola said...

Beautiful photograph of what I think is probably a Canada Goose.

A delightful photo of a bird obviously not intent on poising for you!. I love the pond.

Cildemer said...

Yes! It's a goose! And you captured her wonderfully!
Thanks for sharing, Jeannette;o)

Beautiful picture Jeanette -- it is a Canada goose. That's one of the few birds I know for sure!

It's a nice reflection and a very familiar bird. There were thousands of Canadian geese in Newtown. I like to watch the flocks flying in formations over head.

Thank you, Friend! And I'll pass on the compliment to hubby! Hope you enjoyed your weekend:)

Any green scene is valued greatly in California, for we do not have much rain! Hope you had a nice weekend:)

Little kids are huge distractions for moms:)Who knows, you'll visit California again:!

Thank you! Heard several times that it's the Canadian goose.

Thank you, they do nice landscaping here in the Huntington Gardens!

If someone else takes care of them, lol:)

Thank you, as well as visiting here!

Thank you - there's a general consensus among the ones who commented that it's the Canadian goose -thank you though:)

They don't take directions very well, do they? Lol!

You're welcome! It looked (to me) so big for a goose, but everyone said the same, so a goose it is:)
My weekend was great -thanks:)

Am glad my blog friends help to keep me on the straight path:):)

Now you'll miss some things that looked familiar in Newtown!
