So maybe it’s doing Tai Chi. My contribution to Six Word Saturday. 53.094251 -2.565402 Hurleston Reservoir, Nantwich CW5, UK Like this:Like Loading...

I met his cousin yesterday doing the same thing! But you had your camera with you….. Was his cousin doing yoga or Tia Chi? Hmm. Maybe …. yoga? 😉 An aquatic balancing act. 🙂 🙂 There’s probably another six word title based around aquatic balancing act. Oh my goodness, David. I have a photo of a pelican doing the same stretch!!! I probably have other species on file. It seems to be a popular pose. I was really surprised when I saw a pelican stretch like this. It must be something having to do with bird anatomy. I wonder if it something to do with water birds. Both geese and pelicans spend a lot of time floating and paddling along. Yes, I suspect it does. They have those wonderful webbed feet to balance on. I may have to revise that theory. Here’s a Killdeer doing a similar stretch: https://davidmsphotoblog.com/2019/06/17/cosmic-photo-challenge-an-anime-ted-life/ Oh my goodness! Sure enough. I’ve never seen a non- webbed bird do that stretch. But then the pelican was the first bird I had seen do the stretch at all, so there you are. Theory revised. 🙂 Wonderful capture of the goose! Thank you. I thought that a light hearted six words for Saturday was in order. 👌 Funny. I have a very similar photo of a Canada goose doing the same thing, in Germany though 😀 If I remember correctly I captioned mine differently, a lot ruder in fact. It looks so … disdainful. I though of the yoga exercises mainly for the six word title. The ruder idea never occurred to me. That’s to your honour, I think. 🙂 I don’t know, I usually come up with the ruder ideas. I must have been having an off day. 😀 Thanks for the smile. I try to remember to stand on one leg while microwaving my porridge. It attempts to boil over so requires watching towards the end. Apparently it is good for us (standing on one leg… not sure about the porridge!) Porridge is good for you as oats lower cholesterol. Part of my physiotherapy has been working on the left leg after the accident. I didn’t have any problem balancing on the left leg after the surgeon cleared me to start using it. It’s more a question of getting the strength back in the leg. That seems like a good sign. Saw this yesterday and it made me laugh! If it’s Tia-chi I wonder what position that’s called? I know it’s not downward dog in Yoga but after that I’m lost. 😀 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
