Day One Hundred Forty Six: Diagonal | Slant | Angle | Divide
My hubby and I took the day off to watch our boys at their track and field event at school today. Unfortunately, we were only able to spend a couple hours outside before the rain storms hit... Prior to the events, though, Mike and I got to take a walk together and there were 5 flocks of geese with probably about 50-100 geese in each flock and they were as noisy as could be. My hubby got excited because of the hunter side in him and I was just thrilled that I had my camera on my hip to capture some of them flying by. I did a report as a child on the flying patterns of these migratory birds and always found it so fascinating that they fly diagonally like this because the bird in the front pulls the rest behind. Once that lead bird gets too tired, it will drop off to the back of the flock and the next bird in line takes over the hard part. What a neat way these creatures are able to divide the work so evenly.
