This was the long distance view that greeted me on a recent visit to one of my local patches at Epsom Common Ponds. A pair of Canada Geese with their five goslings in tow.
Anticipating that this might present an opportunity for some shots I promptly headed around the pond to where I hoped they may haul out of the water to feed and for once my hunch paid off.
The parents were in close attendance but not too perturbed by my presence...only 'hissed' at me once!
They spent some time partially hidden amoungst this fresh grassy patch and check out those enormous feet.
Still slightly damp from its early morning swim.
This delightful encounter only lasted a few minutes and then I left them in peace. FAB.
