A goose question?

Why don't geese swim in a V pattern, as they do when they fly?

bc/ they are2 different activities with 2 different functions.

flying in a V is for migration

swimming is short periods of time for finding food, usually, and therefore it's every goose for himself.

if they swam in a V then the front geese would be much fatter than the ones in the back b/c they'd get all the food first!

if you watch, though, they do stick together when they are swimming in a lake.

take care and very observant and thoughtful question!!
