The Geese of the Cathedral of Barcelona.

I loved these white geese as they loved hamming it up for the camera! They are inside the beautiful courtyard of the Catedral of Barcelona and supposedly there are 13 of them (though I only counted 12) to represent the age of Saint Eulalia who was burned at the stake in the 4th Century by the Romans for her religious beliefs. She is the patron saint of the cathedral and the geese are a beautiful reminder of her.
