I know, they’re everywhere, and they shit all over the place. But here in the Wide Open, they’re just another of the critters wandering about.

By way of Gizmo.

On my way through Northfield MA to Vernon VT, I took Old Vernon Road (not recommended) past a startling number of ponds with pine snags, beaver dams and… geese!
Not that they’re rare, but they had goslings in tow, and I broke out Gizmo and my 2X Tele-Extender III, for a whopping 800mm of lens length.
Here are a couple of the shots I snagged, battling camera shake as I hand-held these shots:
Eight babies (one playing “duck” and Dad, if I read the family right.)
They were determined to get some distance between themselves and me, but I moved slowly and carried a big stick.
More shots from that foggy ride to come.
