Goslings on the River


I found a flock of Canada Geese loitering on the riverbank at the end of our road. I parked and scooted across the road to snap some pictures.



They didn’t appreciate my presence and the adults promptly led the goslings to the river’s edge.



The sound of their little feet slap-slap-slapping along the muddy bank was entirely too cute.





A beautiful experience that made my day!
