Across the road is our friends rock quarry and the Canadian geese et al visit before their move to south. I seems a person could reach up and touch them as they get into their final landing pattern. Honkers sure are noisy even at night, but sure are fun to watch land on the water. Funny thing is there is a bigger lake next to us and they don't land there as much.

Ever notice that one side of that *V* is longer than the other? You know why that is don't you?

Yep! But I won't spoil your riddle. We'll see if someone else knows.

They went over us a while ago so I guess it take a while to get south. We are under a flight path of Swans and Cranes also. They circle the up drafts till they are allmost out of site tons of them then head south. Mark H.

I reckon the monarch butterflies have already floated to Mexico, and I all but missed them. Sunday, a grand daughter had everyone over for dinner and I stood looking into the back yard at a little bush covered with tiny white flowers. It may be mountain laurel, neither of us was sure of the name. Anyway, there were probably 2 or 3 dozen monarchs fluttering around that bush, and they stayed all day. When we left to come home, they were still there. This is their 1st year in that home, and she had never seen them gathered like that before.
