We have just got back from a walk in the park and I took these with my Nikon A10.
There were 8 at first and then swimming frantically to catch up came two more. I cropped this one as the other duckling was too far away for you to appreciate their cuteness.
On the other side of the bridge was the greylag and friend. We don’t know if it’s a male or female though, but it’s a resident here.
Walking round to the far side of the lake, we came across a clutch of 5 goslings. The parents were wary, but as always I talk to them and they let me get quite close before getting into the water.
Then I took these:
The interesting thing about the above picture is that the babies were coming towards me!
I’d stepped in a pile of goose poo and walked to the edge of the lake to wash my shoe.
My feet were about 6 inches from the edge at the bottom of the above picture, which I’ve cropped below for better detail. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Mum and Dad weren’t far away, but these little darlings were curious enough to come really close to check me out with their siblings not far behind.
This was the last picture I got before my batteries died.
