Might be Uncle Fred visiting for the occasion or Grandma!!!!!!! Great shot! I have only caught this only once -- the small photo at the top of my blog shows the family I saw. . . in mine, mama is off to the side watching them swim!

Aren't they adorable? I love all babies I guess, but fuzzy ones are certainly among the top.

Not so sure about the nanny... ;-) Cute, aren't they?

So cute! I'm not sure but Mama might want to watch that goose coming up from behind!

She might want a couple of gooslings for her own!

VALKYRIEN said...

What a lovely photo. First time I have seen ducklings with a nanny....

Robin said...

The goslings are adorable, and the commentary cracked me up.

Good thing you cleared that up, I was asking who's the one tailing them.

Lovely lovely capture.

Hi EG, We're home--after a wonderful trip. I'm enjoying catching up with your blog posts. Love that picture of the litte babies. How special!!!

Lawstude said...

That is the chicken said...

Cute:D We saw a family of fourteen goslings last year!

luna miranda said...

oh, what an adorable family! the other one is the grandmother.:D

Karen said...

Beautiful shot!!!

I saw a family of geese down at the lake, recently ...there was an extra one tagging long with that groups as well. Perhaps your 'nanny' thought has merit :-)

Aileni said...

No, that's Auntie...:)
Great family portrait.

barb said...

How adorable! I'm surprised the Mama and Papa let another goose so close to the goslings. My geese are constantly shooing their last year's goslings away. They don't let them within 2 acres!

Wonder Turquette said...

Oh that's adorable! :-)

Christy said...

a lovely famliy potrait. I too have been spending alot of time at the beach watching the new little goslings.

hip chick said...

I hope they all survive and thrive!

They are just adorable. A great photo. We've not quite yet got hatchlings here but it won't be long now.
