Order in Nature: The natural world is full of order and regularity. It is very much visible with the bold patterns or dazzling colours that many animals advertise – either to make one partner attractive to the other or to defence against the predator. But, then order can also be seen in the way animals behave.
Canada goose is the largest goose in the world. They fly in V-shaped formation which is considered to be more energy efficient particularly over long migratory routes and help in increase in flight range by 71%. In fact this type of V-formation is also used by military aircrafts while on flight missions.
Canada geese communicate during their flights by honking and shifting positions during their flight in order to take turns.

They mate assortatively, larger birds choosing larger mates and smaller ones choosing smaller mates. They mate for life and have very low divorce rate. While the Female geese builds the nest, the male geese acts as a sentry watching the nest from a nearby location. On the ground the geese prefer a spot with fairly unobstructed view in all directions. Spacing of these pairs depends on the population density. When the population is large, the birds nest in view of one another.
The baby geese learn to swim in less than 24 hours after they are born and trained by their parents to dive 30-40 feet underwater by the time they are 1 day old. Soon they become more independent and groups of goslings join together to form gang broods of upto 100 goslings and learn to fly between 2-3 months of age.

Like a comet falling from the sky!
They are in fact Jellies that lack brain, bones, gills and other characteristics required to be considered as a fish! The Pacific Sea Nettle (pictured here) are found across the West Coast of the United States. These species have a gold-brown bell with reddish tentacles that can grow up to 15 feet! They are strong swimmers compared to other jellies. Surprisingly only about 5% of Jelly fish body is solid and the rest is water.
