A bundle of fluff......


We came across these little darlings just clambering all over each other, ending up in a little ball of cuteness. Their parents were watching over them and we got several warnings not to go any closer. As they were right next to the walking path it was a bit difficult. Two young girls came by and one adult Canada Goose made a fake charge at her, with it's beak open and tongue showing its displeasure, which made her squeal and run in the other direction. The geese were doing what comes naturally when protecting their young, and we very carefully edged around them and left the little ones to their nap.

Aw, so cute. Geese are good parents, very protective. Glad the youngsters got their nap.

They are delightful. I wouldn't get too close to parent geese, either.

That really is a much needed moment of cuteness that I really needed on a Monday--THANKS for that! :-)

Lovely smile inducing image, Denise. I had a chuckle about the little girl being scared away - hope she wasn't too badly frightened.

They are cute, and you are right their parents get a little testy when they think somebody is too close.

Irresistible! I too would have hovered around for shots.

Hi Denise!
That was super cute!
I love how you caught one begging in the last post!

I am having a hard time posting and linking so I'm glad somebody linked my flowers to TF. My guess is it was probably you? ;-)

Thank you, Angel DEnise!

Love those little ones. I recently had to skirt round a look-out goose - he was very patient with me but eyed me the whole time.

They are adorable when they are small aren't they?
