Aside from the warmer weather, the sunshine, and the leaves and flowers that are now (finally) dotting the landscape – there is another sure sign that spring is here…..
The baby geese are here!!!
I’ve seen four families so far – one at the Cornell Plantations Arboretum and the others at Stewart Park at the south end of Cayuga Lake.
I’ve learned that if you kneel down near the families and stay really still – they will generally come to you to find out if you have any food for them. This (and my 70-300mm lens) allowed me to get some great shots of the babies (not far) away from their mamas.
Such cute little balls of fluff – it won’t be long until they’re going through their awkward teenage phase but right now they are just the cutest thing!
Even goose siblings get into a tussle now and again!
Enjoy the sunshine!!
