Canada Geese on a Log

Canada Geese, Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, Indiana
The Canada goose in the middle seems to be trying to protect the rest of the geese from the sun. This was taken several years back when I was searching for river otters in Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge in Southern Indiana — one of my favorite locations in the National Wildlife Refuge system.
