Beautiful day for a stroll.

Beautiful day for a stroll.
Gorgeous day yesterday...sun shining bright, cool gentle breeze off the lake, soft billowing clouds painting the sky & BABY gooses! Literally tons of shots to sort thru, so I felt a random opus was in order. Lots of gosling shots still to come.

Still working out how to shoot 'scapes.

Just when I thought I had figured out how to shoot gulls I discover that they fish...now I have to get one in focus. Groan...

Dozens of dead fish scattered all over the sidewalk. Guess the gulls don't abide by the catch & release rules.

Wonder if they'll be as successful as the gulls.

'You deserve a break today...' Hope he has just fallen asleep.

What I spied as I drove in...so excited! I counted ten goslings in total.

Must practice my small bird photography.

Ain't they just the cutest things!

Protecting the flank. This one started yelling at me when I got too close to the wee ones...then headed my way. I backed off.

Yes, my friends were there, but they refused to look my way...perhaps jealous of my attention to the goslings.

Soooo many more from this outing, but I think I will stash some away for winter. Lots more goslings to come though.

Adult geese are a force to be reckoned with, Jim. Good idea to back off some there!! LOL

What a nice story this is. We're right there with you at the lake. The last shot is especially nice I think with the gulls all neatly lined up. :)

The adults were pretty cool with me around except this one. Once I got back up...*Groan*...and backed away s/he never bothered with me again.

Glad you enjoyed my randoms. Sometimes I just have too many shots that I don't want to delete so I'll make one long post rather than a bunch of single ones. Makes it easier for people to just scroll past if they wish.

Wow! Look at all those gulls in a line! I love how their heads are all kind of looking the same way, even if they wouldn't cooperate by looking at you! I love your gull fishing shot and I have no doubt that you will get a stellar shot or two of them fishing before the summer is over! I feel a little sorry for the dead and rejected little fishies though!

The goslings are so cute and I quite like your shot of the parent in the rear as he/she came to warn you off.

I feel sorry for the fish too! Circle of life is all well and good, but I hate seeing nature shows that show the predators catching their prey.
