Do I have to? by helenhall

Do I have to?

For now I am following your good advice and starting from where I am.

Managed to walk home along the river after work today and watched two Canada geese protect their handsome brood for a while in the grass, before marching them to the edge of the water and leading them in. This little one was very reluctant to follow.

The hardest thing to snatch a composition whilst the many are moving around, and I totally failed to have the exposure time short enough to account for the speed with which they were moving. So, there have been a great many deletes. If only I had been quicker off the mark, at first I didn't see the brood as they were gathered under their mother's wing. What a beautiful sight it was when she stood up to reveal ten or so little ones raising their heads and rising to their feet.
This is so cute.

Aw this is so sweet. I love the story it tells. It must be quite daunting to take that first leap into the unknown.

so cute - and sometimes the blur adds to the charm of the images. One shot of pure blur of ducks feeding that was on here made the BBC Wildlife calendar a few years back

You have shown the real fluffiness of this gooselet! It looks a bit like a ducklet though! (I do know the correct name - just like to play around)
