A moving moment. Mother goose stuck her beak under the wing where all her five goslings are taking a nap. They are not all five fully covered by the wing but I have not observed any attempt by any of the siblings to sneak under the other wing. Togetherness is probably an important part of their psych and upbringing.

I find it difficult to make a decent revealing picture of black birds, crows in particular. What comes out usually is a black, well outlined blot, lacking any noticeable features. Here's a rare lucky shot - at short distance and under good lighting

Greater yellow-legs, beautiful background and reflection, with a dirty newspaper page and a cluster of grapes. Would probably take some image processing to make it right.

Heron indeed swims. Perhaps this is just that unique individual who learned to swim by watching geese in the pond. There are usually multiple geese but just one heron who adopted the pond for its daily feeding needs. Heron's legs are not made for paddling; clearly it took a well developed power of observation for this one to learn swimming.

One feels a hunter's excitement watching a fishing heron. Catching the right moment is as rewarding for a photographer as it ought to be for the heron

In her recent post Tanya Khovanova bitterly complained of the difficulty the current spread and popularity of the Web and the social networks pose for successful teaching of students to think. A student nowadays can easily find online a solution to the puzzle he or she was supposed to rack the brain over and benefit from that exercise.

In passing, I totally disagree with Tanya's thesis that "People who think make better decisions, whether they want to buy a house or vote for a president." That's factually wrong. This would be rather presumptuous to assume that the ones who disagree with one's choice of a president give their vote thoughtlessly. I am certain Tanya did not mean that.

From the neck down this heron appears as an irregular feather bundle. The reflection is extra

A predictable effect of water droplets on appearance of the underlying texture is still surprisingly pleasant to the eye. Which appears to confirm the independence of emotions from cognition in humans.
