There are a lot of geese these days in a small pond near our house. Yesterday three geese families were lined up along the bank, with each set of gosslings only a week or two older than the others. One family has 11 babies. This picture of the oldest group shows that there is some competition for territory. The oncoming adults causing all the ruckus must have another nest with new eggs somewhere nearby. The big daddy goose here is obviously protective but looks like he's setting a good example for the younger one helping him out.
I love this photo ... had to share it. My camera was set on continuous shooting, and I took this one as I was backing away and not really seeing what was going on. When I downloaded the photos it was a nice surprise.
