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.

A Momma and Children:

By way of Gizmo.

Canada Geese! May 3, 2012

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.

A flotilla of fluffy fledgelings guarded by a goose and gander:

Taken from the shore of Bog Pond up in Savoy.

Enjoy!  🙂
