A beautiful day at the Lago di Chiusi

Arriving at the Lago di Chiusi on a glorious day in Italy is a treat. There’s a lakeside fish restaurant, walks around the lake along tree and reed-lined paths and a small harbour full of ducks and geese.

It’s the geese which fascinate me first. Isn’t this the most magnificent animal?

“Honk!”

I’m enjoying its permanent snarl:

It’s not the only goose around:

What a strange shape their bodies are:

There’s what looks like a domestic Muscovy Duck here too. I assume it hasn’t flown from Mexico on its own.

This has an amazing face too.

I really must write an illustrated book on the evidence of the scientific theory of evolution by natural selection explained by ducks. It’s all there. You don’t need to go any further than ducks in your local lake to see a whole world of evidence.

As afternoon turns to evening we wander along a jetty:

The light is beautiful here:

Light streaks the clouds as we walk back to the car.

It’s been a glorious day.
