Goose, goose, DUCK!

Rain and fog today.  The lake is still busy with geese.   A lone duck was in the midst.  I watched him consider leaving the area, then return, and the climb onto the rocks that the geese had claimed for themselves.  I wanted to applaud him when he’d finally won the rock outcropping for himself.
