A Well-Deserved Drink
The others followed Mom and Dad but this one that ran to the water stopped for a drink.
This young gosling is showing its enthusiasm as it is running for the pond while its sibling chooses to graze. Who knows, maybe it is a challenge to see who will get there first. At this age, it seems their bodies are too heavy for their feet, for they will walk or run a short distance then all of a sudden they will plop to the ground and sit for a while. I get a kick out of them flapping their wings but looking at it seriously, it is probably good practise to strengthen their muscles for the first flight.
