Geese are underappreciated. Who hasn't heard the expression, "Silly as a goose." Yet geese know something we don't. They know how to practice cooperation for the good of all. So, while some geese are relaxing and filling the tank --
Others are keeping a watchful eye out for intruders.
And when we intruded, someone issued the yellow alert ---
--- which immediately attracted a few more sentries.
It was time to move the clan!
We noticed that the big guy -- the first sentinel -- was last off the ground as all flew away.
There is a lesson to be learned from this story, I am sure. Perhaps we should all become as wise as geese?
