You can click to enlarge. I have posted this before...but every time I see it I get tickled. My brother says he hunts this photo every now and then and laughs about it. This is not photo-shopped...other than I cropped it and I resized the photo. I did not know I had captured the upside down goose till I downloaded the photos.
I don't know what was wrong...they would come in to land on this little strip pit, and about the time they would start to land it was like they hit the brakes hard...like something startled them or scared them, they would pull up and would then circle back around and start to land again, only to do the same thing again. I don't remember how many times they did this. Finally they just regrouped and flew off...maybe they weren't used to landing on water. I would think if something scared them they would not have tried landing again and again.
