I went back to again yesterday to take some more pictures. Yeah, twice in three days. What can i say? I really like the place! This time, I did the loop around the pond a few times, and I found a bunch of other trails that I didn’t see the other day. I followed one and it brought me out near a small river (or brook) with lots of cool stuff to shoot. At one point, I saw a small black animal swimming in the creek then up on the bank, then back in the creek and so on. I couldn’t keep track of him after a while, so I didn’t get a shot.
What I did get shots of were a family of geese. The mother and father had three little goslings that they kept a very close watch of. A few times when I was shooting them, one of the parents ‘hissed’ at me. I understand they are very protective of their young, but I wasn’t that close. I had the 70-300mm lens, so I didn’t have to get too close. But hey, I was on their turf, so I understand.
The babies were really cute, with their soft yellow and brown fur and tiny little beaks. I wish I had been able to get a little closer so I could get really good shots of their fur. It seemed really fine. You can see how fine in some of the pics I took. Let me know what you think of them.
I can’t wait to go back. If you live in the area, you should definitely check it out. See ya soon!
