Go fish. 30 days of biking, #11

Two Canada geese flew off to the west from the ditch as I pulled over to take a picture.

This area takes on water every spring. Sometimes the water gets high enough to cross the road.

When the water recedes, it leaves waste from the previous season’s corn crop on the edges of the road.

So it’s pretty easy to see why the geese are attracted to the area.

You might say they keep mistaking a cornfield for a small lake.

But it’s no mistake: they’re attracted to fresh water.

And here it is.

It’s more accurate to say the farmer mistakes a wetland for a cornfield—often replanting after the first crop drowns.

Not that the farmer’s persistence bothers the geese.

Or confuses them.
