Hello friends, here is
a Canada Goose family.

1/1250s f/11.0 ISO1000
50mm (35mm eq:75mm)

from Hinterland Who's Who website

The Canada Goose finds a mate during
its second year and once paired, the geese
remain together for life. Contrary to
popular belief, however, if one member
of the pair is killed, the other will
find a new mate.

Canada Geese breed earlier in the season
than many birds. Breeding is timed so
that the eggs hatch when the plants that
the goslings, or young geese, eat have their
highest nutritional value. The hatch date also
allows enough time for the goslings to grow big
enough to fly south before freeze-up.

Canada Geese that breed in temperate areas,
with mild temperatures, begin nesting as soon
as conditions are favourable in spring, in some
cases as early as mid-March. Canada Geese that
breed in the north reach nesting areas in late
April or early May, later for Arctic breeders.

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely family, fantastic reflections, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
Lovely family is in a beautiful, natural surroundings. The charming photo.

Hi Asbed,

Nicely composed and the blue sheen on the water with reflections of the tall trees in the BG (that arn't visible in the picture) is pleasing to the setting. Who is leading the Gaggle, ma or pa?
