A pair of Canada Geese were cleared for landing and one touched down on open water, but this unsuspecting goose hit the ice. It must have been a big surprise, because as soon as it hit, it bolted up like a rocket! The second attempt was no better as it once again hit the ice and broke through. I didn't include the follow up photos, but after the second landing, the goose gave up and simply forced its way through the ice which was thin enough to give way under the weight. It finally made it to open water. Personally, I think this goose might have been hittin' the bottle during the inbound flight.
