Just before hitting the surface of the water, they tilt their bodies back in unison and jut their feet out in front of them, like in an air show. They break the surface with their webbed feet, abruptly slowing them down, so much so that their little goose butts flip up in the air, tipping ass over teacup, dunking their heads in the water. Not smooth. Not smooth at all. Bad air show. But great entertainment. What’s needed here is a remedial landing class for geese. Or better, they should walk on pointe on the water. For your entertainment.
