I love how you caught the goslings copying their mother here in a variety of poses and with the ripples on the water. It's such a treat to be able to get shots like this and you got a lovely capture of this little family, Debra.

It is so much fun too much nature in action like this. I very much appreciate your feedback Heather, thank you.

Yves Langlois

So nice that you present that moment in life with a good explanation. It is a fix photo but the V shape of the ripples gives a lot of motion to it. Very nice shot.

Debra Plett

Thanks Yves, the geese swimming into the wind created lots of interest in the water.

Jane LeBlanc

I love the sense of movement with the ripples on the water. Nice job!!

Debra Plett

Thanks very much for the kind feedback Jane.

The goslings seemed to be repeating the actions of the mother goose. The head would go up and they would look around then the head would skim just above the water and repeat.
