Canada Geese In Hiding

CW. This family of geese found a little cove in the reeds to hide in until the photographers went away. I took Bruce Grayum @brucegrayum to Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge to get him some time outdoors as he recovers from knee replacement surgery, and we had a good time photographing several species of birds.
Beautifully done - the reflections and ripples on the water drew my eye, but the colourings and details of the geese are just superb.

Fabulous capture. The babies with their yellow coloring make a great reflection in the ripple of water.

@amandal Thanks for the fav, Amanda. They were sure fun to watch. The mother kept pecking the water behind the babies to steer them into hiding.

@graemestevens @kbird61 @peterdegraaff @dgrynn @momzo @sansjuan @rangerxenos Thanks for your comments. There are more goslings this year than I've ever seen at the refuge.

What a great capture, Ross. I am sorry that I missed the last days of your photos. I have to learn how to capture clarity throughout my photo like this. FAV

Thanks again for the fav, Darlene. The whole trick to this one was bracing the camera enough to avoid camera movement. I was shooting from the car with the engine off to avoid vibration, with the lens resting on a styrofoam pad.
