Beautiful, beautiful capture!
Great minds think alike!
What a delightful sight we were treated to yesterday, Terry! Seeing these new hatchlings and their Mom left me feeling wonderful throughout the day!
Loved running into you at Forest Lawn... I laugh when I think of you, me, and Barbara, all laying on the ground, on our bellies (goose poop and all!), with our lenses pointed at these goslings!
The stuff fond memories are made of!
Many blessings, Lisa♥ #7487076

Thank you so much for your very kind comments, folks! I do have some sad news to report. Today we watched in horror as one of the adult geese purposely drowned the bright yellow gosling you see in this photo. He was just 3 days old. #7489621

Gerri R. Jones 5/5/2009 7:10:05 PM

Terry...this is so precious and the perfect mother's day image! I was really shocked to hear the story about the behavior by the adult goose toward the baby. As I mentioned, we will have to check to see what we come up with regarding the reasons for this. #7489653

Linda L. Soderfelt 5/14/2009 12:49:31 AM

Terri...I'm so happy to see you got POD. Not only is it wonderful for you but it is wonderful for me. I'm so glad I got to see this beautiful, heart warming photo.
Incidently, I noticed that the chicks were not the same color. The yellow one was obviously less mature as the feathers turn grey as they mature. I know some animals kill any sickly babies, supposedly because they want to conserve the available food for the ones that will be well enough to survive and be healthy. I don't know if this is true of geese or not. But I am wondering if the yellow one was ill and that accounted for the lack of the more mature grey feathers. It is a very sad thing to hear and must have been much worse to see.
Regardless, congratulations on a well deserved POD! #7518474
