My true love gave to me,
Six geese a-laying......
When I was putting together this desktop, I had initially in mind a more styalized a version, but started thinking and finally decided to include some Australian geese and the desktop became more naturalistic.
These are Cape Barren Geese from the Southern Australian foreshores and nearby islands.
I have used a bit of artistic licence here as I'm sure that these geese would never be seen nesting in close proximity! They are probably monogamous and in reality quite aggresive during the breeding season which runs from June until September. [so they are definitely running a bit late this year]
The six geese of the song are said to represent the six days of creation.
In a zip file which you can download from my 4-shared storage, I have included, as well as various sized images, ones without text.
