G/ Alphabe-Thursday

 Gosling "teenager" with still fluffy head

Not everyone is fond of Canada geese, but most everyone will agree that their goslings are cute.

Some of the goslings in my neighbourhood are starting to look a lot like their parents, although they are still smaller and some of their feathers are downy.

 Hungry

 I'm not sure what they were eating but I think it was clover.

Hi EG. Never seen these goslings this size and I do like. Canada geese. also your sunset in your last post is amazing. I see there are 2 seats, 1 for you and 1 for me!

Revrunner said...

Awesome to think about how fast these young ones will become high flyers like their parents.

Carole M. said...

and will grow up to be very handsome too

Andy said...

They like to poop in the parks but that's a crappy reason for disliking them.

I don't see them very often so I'm always happy to meet some! They are so cute!

The only time I disliked Canada geese was when they invaded during my wedding! Guess they thought we were the invaders.

Roan said...

I've seen lots of geese and lots of goslings, but never this age. They are a bit odd looking, but wills oon be as beautiful as their parents.

Such lovely photos! Amazing!

see you there! said...

Interesting fuzzy things. I suppose the grown ups make a mess or something. Why are they disliked?

Excellent captures on this one!

Yes, they do make a mess, but I don't mind them.

Birdman said...

LOVE the geese, but NOT what they leave behind.

Linda W. said...

Awww...cute photos. You've captured the teenage awkardness perfectly!

TexWisGirl said...

so very cute!

Sandra said...

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

These guys are so cute. We had several near our home along the pond.

Judy said...

I like seeing them in the park pond by our house when they winter here. We never see the young ones though so it was fun to see what they look like.

Gillian Olson said...

Great shots of the teenager, still has the downy look.

Gail Dixon said...

I do agree that the goslings are cute. Don't think I've seen one in the "teenager" stage before. They're adorable as well.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Wow! The goslings looks beautiful.
You took great pictures!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I love all the details in the wing that you captured.

Debbie said...

RedPat said...

Love that close-up of the wing, EG!

Lisa Gordon said...

What sweet little ones they are!

Small City Scenes said...

You know they are cute. The ones at our pond grew so fast it seemed. Soon they fly back to their winter home. MB

Jette Hollesen said...

So nice! I want to stroke the head...
Lovely photos!

Who doesn't love pictures of the kids and grandkids !?

Ela said...

Beautiful creature :)

eileeninmd said...

Cute series on the goslings!

jeannettestgermain said...

Interesting to see the wing spread out and see on your capture it's made up of individual feathers! (only a city slicker can be amazed at that, lol)
About the green card, next time I see my daughters I'll tell them that it might be worth it to become a citizen (5 y. process), since they have a family with kids here.

Birgit said...

So precious!

Love, love, LOVE this sweetie pie!! Darling.

Betty said...

We don't have them this far south, but my mother always complained about them in New Jersey. It's strange because I don't ever remember seeing them as a child growing up there. They must have arrived after I left.

Jeanne said...

How interesting that wing close up is. Not what I would have imagined it would look like. Great shots!

Michelle said...

That is a great close shot of the wing.

Jack said...

Maybe I will just whisper here: (I am one of those who is not fond of Canada Geese, though the little ones do seem cute . . . just wait until they grow into the landscape befowling machines they will inevitably become.)

Rose said...

I love how you caught them in action.

Indrani said...

Kind of: Here, click this pose. :)
Great captures.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I have a love- hate relationship with Canada Geese ... Mostly love. Especially when I'm not around them ans stepping in what they deposit. ;)) Before we left Oregon for Alaska, we watched the adorable tiny baby balls of fluff, but we are missing the teenagers this year. So thanks for sharing yours. Now that I think of it, I'm kind of surprised we don't see them up here.

orchid Miyako said...

Lovely young Canada geese♡♡♡ How great you could capture "the Stretching its wing" shots really sweet to see them♡♡♡

Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan EG, xoxo Miyako*

Joe said...

You really did manage to get quite close.

fredamans said...

Living here in Hamilton, there are a ton of geese. Especially buy the bay or lake. They can be a nuisance, pooping everywhere and chasing people... but they are a beautiful bird as well.

Judie said...

That "teenager's" head looks just like my hair in the morning. Great photos!

Lmkazmierczak said...

Wonderful series...I'm noticing more geese on my walks but haven't spotted any young-uns♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/gathered-flotsam/

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

They are cute and I do like them even though they trapped me in my barn one day and wouldn't let me out! I had to call animal control to come and move them...

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I think they are cute- but I have never had to deal with their messes. Great close up shots!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

DOn't they grow quickly?!

Stephanie said...

I agree, they are so very cute!

ladyfi said...

Adorable shots.

Karen S. said...

So charming! You do such incredible things with that camera of yours!

Susan Anderson said...

The goslings are cuter than the geese.

I do like geese, but mostly from far away...

;)

kelley jensen said...

Grantham Lynn said...

Great captures. Nicely done. Yes the babies are cute. I like the 'teenager'. I came over for the Letter G today. I posted too. Mine aren't as pretty though!
Have a good week.
