Gotta Love those little Goslings!

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

When baby Canada geese, called goslings, emerge from their shells in springtime they have yellow feathers like baby ducklings. They follow their parents around in a goose parade for about two months until they are ready to learn to fly. By autumn, they accompany their parents on the southward migration.

That water sure looks nice and cool …. maybe I’ll go for a swim.

Guess I better wait for mom and dad to go in first ……

I’ll just hang around here on the bank and eat some grass until they get in the water and then I can follow them.

Duckies and Geese

Friday, April 17th, 2009

I went off without my good camera and lens today so all I had was a little Point & Shoot in my purse!  Someday I will learn not to leave the house without the “big guns”.  These images are totally blown out but that is to be expected with the camera that I was using 🙁

The  little ones were just adorable.   IMG_6293
