Oldest to Youngest
I got a kick out of the behaviours of the Goose families. They all are close to one another, but parents sure get on their guard if one family gets too close to another.I thought this was because I was too close but they were focused on their own species.
This above is usually a no-no composition for me but i like the mother goose view of her scattered brood.
When the goose lays her head low, as a warning to others, I believe, it is interesting to see some of the young mimic the behaviour.
Sorry for the slow shutter speed in the above, but here an older gosling has wandered from its family to peck at the younger one. I had to hold myself back, and was surprised that the parents didn’t notice. Or maybe this is just about growing up.
This one was stretching it’s wings although barely developed , then promptly plopped down , its body too heavy for its legs.
here are a family of older goslings, maybe a couple of weeks old.
And here are the newest, probably a couple of days old with both parents being very attentive.And one last shot of a closer view.
