When you look at these cute little ones its hard to imagine just what they are, In a few months they will grow up into Canada Geese which if anything like their parents they will chase you . I went into the forest on Sunday and was suprised to see them.

Canada goose. (Branta canadensis) A large unmistakable goose with a upright stance and long neck giving a swan like silhouette. as the name suggests its true range is North America, but now common in England.has white cheeks on otherwise black head and neck. Body mainly grey-brown. can be seen in large flocks on lakes and reservoirs, not often seen on the coast.

Hi Nicholas,

Hello Nick
Having seen you face to face I have to be honest and say your not cute in the slightest!!
But as for this pair..They are indeed very cute..I dont believe I have ever seen a young Canada goose before..Perfect focus and sharpness showing splendid details.

yes, yes, you are, both!
no points, because i want to see if that i don't give anymore points, i will have visitors at my photos:-)
points are not important to me.

Hi Nick, disregarding the cute factor, these goslings are very well photographed. Clean, sharp and well defined. Good work. regards h

Hi Nick

These little Gooslings are just so cute and fluffy, like Paul I don't recall seeing young Canada Geese before.
Nicely composed with lovelt details and nice natural colours.
I took about 50 shots of a yellow Mallard Duckling over the weekend but not one was sharp enough to post, better luck this weekend.


I have some of the Roan variety....Unfortunately they were sitting in a plastic pond in front of the local Ranch supply store...:-( Very nice in natural though....very nice Sir Nick..Ah...Mario has returned!

Hi Nick,

This is at the top of the cuteness scale! They are adorable and look so soft and cuddly. I love the face, beak and eye. You captured the colors and textures of the plummage perfectly.


What a question, Nick!
We are all going "Aghhh!"

They are so gorgeous! You have captured their characters with lovely, sharp details! Just look at those fluffy bodies and cute faces!

No wonder chicks hold a special place in our hearts!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Nick

This wins the cute vote - but why does one always look in the wrong direction? Lovely details with all the fluffy feathers, lovely natural colours and great POV. It is a shame they don't stay like this.
