Baby Geese

This morning when I was out playing a round of golf with the 'girls', we spotted a family of Canada geese on one of the fairways.Fortunately, they were quite near the tee, so were not in too much danger of being hit by a ball.
 
After my golf round, I went home and came back with my scope and camera to take some photographs of this lovely family. The  weather forecast had been for rain, but it turned out to be a lovely sunny day.
 
Here are some photographs of the birds.

 After being on the fairway, the family made their way to the pond for a relaxing swim, but stopped off in the undergrowth for another snack. This gave me a chance to get some good close-up images of the young ones.

Looking over the pond, I also saw some Greylag Geese with their young. They were a bit far away, but the photograph came out okay.

A Moorhen was in the distance with her young but was too far away to photograph well.

All the photographs were taken by digiscope and they turned out well. What a great way to spend an afternoon!
