This afternoon something new at the dock caught my eye. Could it be that our goose couple had their babies? Nope, she’s still in her nest with hubby close by. Instead it’s another goose couple that brought their newly born goslings to visit.
Grabbing my Canon 60D with the 100-400mm lens, I slowly walked towards the dock. Within 50 feet though, I went to the ground and every few minutes slinked a foot or two closer so I could get a better shot. Luckily, my cat Tuxedo who had followed me down to the water, decided to hide in the vegetable garden. Somehow he knew not to scare off the babies. Who can resist such cuddly little cuteness ! I want to hold one, hug him, kiss him and squeeze him.
While watching the babies, I realized that the two boys were talking smack to each other. Seems our resident couple weren’t too pleased about having visitors, even if there are three cute, adorable babies.
The boys flew off onto the river, one chasing the other up and down the water. Leaving visitor Mother Goose wondering what she should be doing to protect her babies.
She decided that her visit was no longer wanted, so dropped into the water with her three babies close behind.
Off for safer waters.
