Mirror Mirror on the Road!




Taken on 25 October 2010 at A1 Plaza, NH5, Nellore.

Every time I travel southward from Nellore city, I visit the A1 plaza on NH 5. I love the gaggle of geese that roam the gardens there. There are four in all now, and are a treat to the eye. 

Yesterday, it had rained, and the little puddles in the paved drive-in gave me some great photo opportunity. 

Anser anser domesticus, the White Geese are domesticated and kept as poultry for their meat, eggs, and down feathers since ancient times. These geese are often preferred as they look better plucked and dressed, as the down feathers are less conspicuous. They make pairs for life and display courtship activity in spring.
