I was on the treadmill the other day and was looking out the window of the rec. center. Right now we have numerous flocks of birds hanging outside. Most notably the Canadian Geese, they make a mess and really aren't welcome as they're not native to our area. Really they're a nuisance.
Buuuuut, as I was watching out the window several landed directly in my line of view. They all settled down fairly quickly, preening feathers and fluffing them selves up. One though stood for quite some time on one leg, so long that I began to wonder if he was injured. But then he sloooowly fanned out his (or her-I really can't tell the difference), wing, then in near slow motion stretched his foot SIDEWAYS under the wing in a perfect imitation of a yoga pose. He held there for several seconds, then gradually and gracefully set his leg down releasing his wing at the same time. I couldn't help laughing to myself thinking "that goose does better yoga than I do!" Ha ha ha ha ha! It kinda made my day!
