One against All!! Stanley Military Barracks- 1841

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Unfair advantage. I am not sure, what the goose thought of the competition, but it was definitelly outnumbered. Normally the geese outnumber any other life form except, of course, seagulls.

The geese usually do not think, they are just perfect poop machines, but get credit for keeping the grass short in many Toronto parks.

This is a obvious companion piece to the previous photo, so if you want to know how the swan got there, and where they go, read my comments there.

In the background are historic Stanley Barracks (1841), which used to be at one point Marine Museum until 1998, and later Sports hall of Fame (until 2006).

Both attractions did not draw enough interest, so they are now closed.

Entered into September 2012 NPC competition #49

Hope this goose was not swept by Sandy, but made it to the group!
