Watery Wednesday: Chicks

This weeks Watery Wednesday pics were taken at Fort Snelling State Park back in May.
Canadian geese are a pretty common sight in Minnesota year round. During the late fall and early winter, like right now, they gather in large flocks and scavenge the farm fields for any left over grains.
Since they are so common geese I typically do not spend much time photographing them. However when they are surrounded by four tiny little yellow balls of down they are really hard to ignore.

So glad you didn't ignore them. These are very cute images and they don't stay that little very long.
Great shots!

I got a kick out of watching the 3 pairs of geese that nested on our pond. I could ID them by the white patch on their heads. During the summer of 2007, someone shot them all despite the fact we live in the suburbs and then left them in the pond. It was a grim task for my husband to remove the dead and dying from the pond. We didn't have any this year

How very sweet they are and what a lovely family they make. Nice to see a touch of summer again right now.
