Egyptian Geese near to Reading University lake. They are normally the first to produce their chicks, but were beaten by the Mallards this year.
Toute la famille est réunie ! Bonne journée

Always such cute little goslings - my local ones are already bigger than a mallard in just ten weeks.

Love those fluffy little goslings. How did you manage to get such a close up?

@Ruthiebear: They don't seem to be phased by humans. They live right next to a busy path that goes round the lake, and as long as you don't make any sudden movements, just go about their business. Also, this was shot on a 7D which has a 1.7* crop factor, so the effective lens length was nearly 250 mm, so quite a long lens
how sweet ... taking the first steps under the watchful eyes of mother ...

A perfect photo to welcome the Spring.... they are the cutest! I don't think they have their land legs yet... they look a little wobbly. Your capture is perfect and a pure joy to see... I enjoyed!
