Geese at the lake in the park. While trying to find out what kind these are I came accross some interesting mythological information about geese.
The old Greeks admired geese for their beauty and it was common to keep them as some kind of "decoration" or give them as a present to a beloved one. The Romans held them as guards because of their distinctive senses.
Apparently, in China geese are the symbol for marital truth and fidelity, whereas in India they are a symbol for wisdom and clarity.
