Geese in Flight Watercolor Sketch

In Flight Geese (watercolor, watercolor pencil, black micron pen)

In flight.
Oh, I wish I had an ounce of their grace.

The best part…the tips of their wings!

Some may consider the Canada Goose a nuisance. As a protected bird, it has over populated my area. If you visit a cemetery, golf course, university grounds, or any large plot of manicured property, you will find the Canada Goose. Not only one, but hundreds of them…along with their many droppings. 😉

Call me one for the underdog, but I have always loved the overlooked, ordinary species. Maybe because I consider myself part of the group.

Canadian Geese in my area do not migrate, but can tough it out all winter long. There is however, a crowded path in the sky overhead at this time of year, with many flying south.

I love that V formation! BTW!

We can learn a lot from teamwork as we study geese in flight. Lift is being provided from the front goose to the goose behind it. The energy saved is ingenious.


Go geese go!

  1. Love it! I walk in a park 4 days a week, we have been seeing the migrating geese. You captured it. 🙂

    • THanks so much! I love watching them take flight together or when landing, circle around a lake before they land. They seem to all have perfect timing!
