There are dozens of types of wild and domesticated geese, in an infinitely diverse range of colors and patterns, scattered around the planet earth. It would have taken me ages to gather a gander from each sub family for your viewing pleasure, so I sincerely hope that you’ll be happy with the top 12 geese pictures that I could find. Speaking of finding geese, it feels so strange to find Canada geese in the lakes around my home- Shouldn’t they be called Florida geese, or at the very least American geese? Never mind- Enjoy these boarder-hopping beauties!
