A Canada Goose gosling marches along with its two siblings as mom and dad stand guard. I was so close to them I could not fit the three of them in the frame - one of the disadvantages of a prime lens. I am also surprised I was tolerated the way I was by the parents but I think it was because I was seated on the ground before they came towards me and I made no attempt to move closer. They started in shadow and as they walked along they moved into the light which made for a really nice dark background. If you view large you can see a spider with a midge in its clutches in the lower left part of the frame - not sure how I caught that!

Thanks for your views and comments - they are so appreciated!

It took a while, but this double-crested cormorant finally has its fish ready for gulping.

I'm not sure what kind of fish this is. If anyone knows please educate me!

With two nests nearby, this adult green heron was no doubt taking a break from either egg sitting or foraging for hungry little mouths.

Taken at Ding Darling NWR.
