Image Story - This baby Canada Goose (Gosling) was nibbling away on the small seeds found in a grasses along a lagoon. It is being closely watched by its mother. Sometimes they get so single minded that the gosling forgets and just edges closer and closer to me, as I sit extremely quiet with telephoto lens and camera in hand. The key is to be as non threatening and quiet as possible to capture these types of natural shots. It is always a beautiful experience when these families allow me among them to witness their world.
Newly hatched Canada Geese look much like ducklings with yellow and gray feathers and a dark bill. But within a week they grow to be rather awkward-looking, fuzzy gray birds. By nine to ten weeks old, they will have grown their flight feathers and look like slightly smaller versions of the adult. I'll be back to see their progress.
