[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While I was out fishing this pair of Canada Geese had a bathing session in front of me.. then disappeared around the little spit of land I was on. A short while later they appeared on the grass behind me, preening and drying themselves. I just got lucky with this one; other than cropping a little I didn't have to do more than adjust the contrast a wee, tiny bit.

The following information is from The Animal Diversity Web

Canada geese are monogamous. Pairs form during the winter, during migration or on their wintering grounds, for the next breeding season. Mated pairs may stay together for more than one year, sometimes staying together for life.

Males fight over females with their wings and bills. The winner approaches the female with his head down and neck undulating. He makes hissing and honking noises. The pairs mate either before or after they have found a nesting location. Mating, occurs in the spring on the water. The female is usually partially submerged or completed submerged while copulation takes place.
