After trying for years, today I finally found a pair Canadian geese parents and their goslings that were willing to pose for a family portrait.
As I turned out of the parking lot at lunch time, this family group was grazing by the side of the road. I stopped my car right in the middle of the road and took 43 pictures, backing up occasionally as the family walked along the edge. A few cars came and went, but they obligingly past me without honking which would have surely spooked Papa Goose.
As it was he stopped and watched me warily a couple of times. Mama Goose and babies trusted him to be on the lookout for danger because they went right on eating and ignoring me.
Aren't they sweet?
