A Family of Canadian Geese

A family of Canadian geese , how lucky could I get !  I was at Timothy Lake when I got my first sighting of these magnificent creatures !   My hiking buddy had taken me to Timothy Lake so I could see Mount Hood in the distance but I could not take my eyes off of those beautiful geese and their goslings !  We were viewing nature from two different perspectives.

There was no way I was going to miss this shot !   I had my camera in hand and was frantic about the timeframe I would have.   To my surprise these geese were not in a hurry to leave once they spotting us but instead they were approaching us with their babies !   I walked along the banks of the lake towards an open spot where the sun was not blocked by the tall pine trees along the shore and snapped this beautiful shot of them.  They even came on shore with us.   Turns out it was the geese giving the humans treats !

One of my relatives lives by a river and is fortunate to have a family of Canadian geese that visit her every spring she has a shot of a goose on her diving board with other geese standing around the pool !   Now that shot is a conversation piece !
