Feathered Friends

I got some pretty good pictures of the greylag family today.
There are four goslings, 2 white and 2 grey, but they are all different.
As I was chatting to the geese (as I always do) snapping away with the canon, they were quite content to let me get quite close, and the one white gosling broke ranks and came up to my feet. The adults didn’t bat an eye, and just carried on pecking at the grass with the others.
As we turned away to come home, they went into the water and I got two shots of them on the lake.

Here are my pictures which I hope you enjoy.

Family gathering 
You looking at us?
Where do you think you’re going?

Left: Inches from my feet . Right : family not bothered of my presence.
 

Into the water and safety from that black furry thing!
I cropped this from the top picture as the mannerisms of the white gosling so mirrored that of the greylag.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
