The Family Goose Incident
8

A few days ago I spotted a goose family swimming in a long file - two proud parents with their ten (!) little kids:

As I knew that the small pond would end soon in the direction they swam so eagerly I waited to see what they were up to - and only moments later they decided to climb the pond's bank:

They then ducked under an iron fence to get to the walkway I was standing on - ignoring me completely:

The whole family then circled around me, and went straight further on:

Until they reached the first larger patch of greenery - and then I understood what they were up to: all the young ones started at once to eat their healthy and fresh green dinner!

Hope you enjoyed family goose's dinnertime.

Weather was not favorable, and I certainly did not have the right lens with me - the FA-J 18-35 on my K-1 - but the croppability of the K-1's sensor helped here. All pictures cropped - more or less heavily - save the last one.
