Geese at McDonalds!

So, I was driving along the highway, the other day, when I saw out of the corner of my eye, a gaggle of Geese grazing right under a McDonald's drive thru sign, it cracked me up, even geese go to MCeeDee's.

Of course, at the time, I was whizzing by at 50 miles an hour and didn't have my camera in the car. I was a considerable distance from my home but I really wanted to get that shot, so later that day I returned but the geese had gone. Not to be put off, trying to be the intrepid photographer, I tried the next day, only to find the geese were quite happily occupied by some bread throwing humans outside another restaurant right next to the "Do Not Feed the Birds" sign. What to do????

I guess, at this point I am a little disappointed but still want to find the shot. I wait, no these people are in for the long haul.


Having had several children participate in multiple sports over the years so I am very familiar with the location of every McDonald's this side of the Rockies (well, maybe not all but you get my point) and there are a few closer to rivers that I thought I would find more geese having a
Mc. attack, I was so excited to find these guys :)

That goose is definitely eyeing that sign :)

Waiting for their fries??

On their way to McDonald's :)

No, I am being good, I didn't have any :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Lol! Around here, it's the crows that love McDonald's. They can be seen waiting for fries to drop any day of the week ;)

I love the idea of you stalking the geese at Mickie D's. Great photos!

Great photos ! It's frustrating when you get an opportunity to capture a great shot and there are people in the way, ruins the moment. You can't very well ask them if they'd be so kind as to step aside so you could get a clear shot of the geese, even if they did they'd be looking at you like you were some really crazy lady. People just don't understand us dedicated bloggers. LOL

Ha ha! Dedication indeed!I wonder what that first goose would order? A kid's meal with an Early bird figurine be best!

Wow, I haven't seen geese in years (Arizona)! These are amazing photo's...which will remind me to always keep my camera in my car for moments like these.

Heehee... well it doesn't look like those geese are overly plump, so maybe they are just eating lightly there. ;)
