Photographer's Note

This photo was taken along Etobicoke Creek.

You will know the familiar V-shape of Canadian geese returning to build their nests in Canada. By flying in the V-formation the whole flock is able to fly almost twice as far as one good could manage alone. In the V-formation each goose finds flying easier. The air behind each goose lifts the next one in line. The geese take turns leading. As they fly the long distance from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic, they honk to encourage each other.

When a goose gets sick or is wounded while flying, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again. Then they join another flock or catch up with their own.

We admire these birds for their abilities, but they are very different. In much the same way, you are different from your friends. You are unique, or special, because of who you are and because of what you are able to do.

**Post Pro - Increased saturation just slightly to bring out the colour in the feathers. Also, in Photoshop I used the Dodge tool to bring more detail back into the face (the eye mainly). No cropping.
