great shot.
La profondeur de champs est parfait (focus is perfect), j'aime l'enchainement, il crée une scène de vie, peut-être qu'en revanche, la disposition verticale n'est pas adequate.

LOL...It looks like the gosling is letting out a rather large burp in the last shot! Too funny!

It looks like that worm is actually a fishing lure. Do you know if it was? I hope if it was a lure that it didn't damage the gosling’s digestive system.

Geese are a problem here in NJ. The pond by me has been all but destroyed by them. They have polluted it to the point that it needs some serious help or it's going to die. It smells horrible and has a solid layer of green on top of mot of it that makes it almost look like there is no water.

They are so prevalent that school fields are almost dangerous to use because of the amount of droppings. I even had one smash into my windshield last year, scared the you know what out of me. I stopped but couldn't find any that appeared injured among the hundreds that were on the church field where they all had landed.

But they are cute when they are babies.

Goslings are such little goofs :)

When I lived in St Louis, our office was built on a former bean (soy) field. Never mind what was once verdant ag land was now a parking lot, the geese continued to return nesting on the islands in the parking lot. It made exiting one's car an adventure.

Nice shots, and I agree about the DOF.

Oh Micki, you're awesome. I haven't been here an a while and I've really missed out. These photos are incredible.

I love the "Can I have desert" question, it fits these pictures perfectly. I'm sorry I haven't come by much recently, for some reason you were accidentally erased from my favorites list. I put you back on, so I'll be around again soon. I love your photos!

Three lovely shots there, Micki. #3 is an absolute gem although it makes me wince to see them take down a live worm. That said, they wouldn’t be too impressed by some of the dead stuff I consume, either.

They are so fluffy and so adorable! I love there high-pitched squeaky voices. My favorite is the third photo, because of the open mouth and the excellent DOF!
