I stepped out the front door the other evening to see if it was still too hot to take George on an evening stroll, and what I saw surprised me. The little Canada Geese family was about 100 yards away at the back of the maintenance shed, and upon hearing my door open, they bolted towards the pond, all of them running as fast as they could, with their necks pointed straight out.
The babies are huge now, and I went in the house and put the zoom lens on my camera and George and I headed down to the pond. It was still pretty darn hot and humid and I had to wait quite a while until the lens stopped fogging up, but I managed to get a couple of decent shots of the little ones.
In the top photo, the momma goose is with three of her little ones. Look at how much they’ve grown in two short months! Do you see them up in the header I made? That’s the same family when the goslings were tiny.
In the second photo, three of the little ones are swimming in a line right through the center of the picture.
I’m on a road trip with my good friend, Karen. I left Tuesday night from my house to stay with her in NJ. We’re going swimming in Adrienne’s pool. On Wednesday morning, we plan on heading north. More on our destination will come.
George is doing fine. I just needed to tell you that. He was excited to be at the vet office, and even as they led him away, he never looked back!
He was a little groggy when I brought him home yesterday, and I left him in the care of my husband and son. I'll call home this morning to make sure he's doing fine.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone.
