[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two Goslings cross the tracks behind Guelph's River Run Theatre.

These goslings have just begun to grow their first feathers - each has one or two on their back. A group of almost 20 were being hearded by three adults. No doubt the goslings are from more than two sets of parents and simply have a babysitter.

The young are quite curious: I was mobbed by them shortly after this picture. They came right up and surrounded me. Of course, this lead the adults to move in for some serious hissing.

PP: Crop, local smart sharpening, rotate 1 degree CCW.

Hello Josh,
Cute capture, I like this!
Good timing, and the rail gives a good scale to their size...
Well composed, good lines!

Un très beau moment de la vie des animaux dans la boite à jamais. En plus de l'événement, la photo est bien construite. Félicitations.

Bonjour Josh!

Félicitations pour ce beau moment saisi.

Merci pour l'envoie.

Hello Josh,
Great shot of these goslings. The moment well observed. Good composition and POV. TFS

HAHA funny capture, these curious ducklings will probably not find food here on the train tracks. I think the little bit of foreground is necessary to lead the eye into the image, but maybe cropping just below the lightpole wouldn't hurt. Curiosity killed the cat but hopefully not these cute little ducklings.

Preciosa pareja que se pone de acuerdo para hacer las cosas juntos, je.
Buenos detalles y acertado encuadre Josh.
Saludos, JL.
