Luckily I took my camera to the bus stop this morning because two families of Canadian Geese had just decided to cross from one side of the lake to the other.
Once the bus left, I managed to get a few shots. My camera isn’t too good (or maybe it’s just me!) at getting the zoom shots, but you can see how cute the babies are..and big! They were tiny just a few days ago.
One family, mom, dad and four babies, decided to swim under the bridge to get to the other side.
And the other, larger family, decided to walk across the road. This is a rural area which makes it a safe place for geese to raise their babies. I love seeing them although some people think geese are a nuisance.
Do you know why geese fly in a V formation? Check out the answer here.
My question is this; When they swim in a line, who leads? The dad or the mom? Or do they take turns?
