About This Image

I was taking pictures of this family of geese when the caretaker of the park told me that the one exceptionally small baby was not this mother and fathers baby. They had adopted it when its mother had died and were raising it as their own. Simply made me warm to hear that.

Great photo and story. The baby is lucky that it can feed itself. The only problem might arise if they migrate. This little one will have a hard time keeping up with the older babies.

There is just something that calls out to one when we see baby geese, ducks or chickens. They seem to have a special sweetness about them to me. A beautiful picture and a wonderful heart touching story to go with it. Thank you.

Hi Steve, Wonderful photo of the family out having fun. That is a great story about the adopted baby, critters sure can be amazing at times.. Hey it actually rained here yesterday, hope your car got a free wash job :)

I can see that one of the goslings is smaller than the rest; wonder if this is the adopted one? Great 'family' shot! :)

that is a heart warming story about these parent geese adopting the baby from the mother that had died. guess all it's siblings must've perished without their mother. cute image also.
