Camera Critters - 05-30-09: Goose Families

Camera CrittersThis meme is all about photos of animals/critters.
Visit the Camera Critters website for more wonderful critter photos.








There are a lot of Canada geese that live around the downtown waterfront area in Portland. These families were swimming along the seawall while I was above them on the promenade.





I hadn't noticed the aggression posturing of the parents until I downloaded the photos. I was concentrating on the beautiful goslings.

Awww they are so cute. Mamma clearly was not happy with you being nearby.

Baby birds are always so cute with their fluffy down.

In the 3rd photo, the baby seems to be mimicking the parent's posture. Interesting observation on the aggressive stance, and great photos!

They are cute aren't they. These guys look like they are about a month old or so and nobody is as protective as a goose parent...
