Camera critters #3 - Attention!

This is my entry this week to the popular camera critters meme.

I came across this flock of geese while trekking near Lake Chilika in India. All of them, striking an 'ATTENTION!' pose, as if listening to someone with rapt attention. Funny!

    1. Sir it could be a gaggle or flock in general but it seems different collective nouns apply when the geese are in flight! Also, gaggle is applicable only when there are at least five geese :) Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaggle

      English is a very funny language indeed! And thanks to you for asking, I learnt about a few more collective nouns!
