Here are two beauties from my garden:
And a close-up:
Then, we took a walk down to another part of your lake and saw two geese. Upon closer examination, we were tickled to see that they had babies with them!
Mama Goose looked up suspiciously when she saw us from quite a distance:
She scurried her family back into the water:
Later, they came back out, but Mama and Papa gave us some warning HONKS!:
We remained very still, and they calmed down and went back into the water for a family swim:
That's geeses for beautiful pic I love the close up of the tulip!
Your pics get more amazing everyday
Oh how wonderful We have a family of Wood Ducks mom and 9 chicks. What a family. They come at 7:30 am and leave after a treat of corn.
Nuttin' cuter than babies! Well, except baby skeeters that is!
Your tulips are beautiful!! I have some red ones that just bloomed!
What a considerate paparazzo you are! Beautiful pics, Lady!
My oh my you take the most wonderful pictures EVER!!!!!
Scrappy Do: Thanks so much! We loved seeing the geese family.
Carol: Oooh...I would love to see the wood ducks and chicks pictures you are going to take!
Cathy: I agree...luv them babies! Take some photos of your tulips too, I'd love to see them.
Aria: Paparazzo I am...I am gettng worse bothering all the wild animals. ha Thanks!
Brittany: Thanks so much, Sweetie!
Amazing pics, as usual! : ) I love the close-up of the tulip with the dew on it. Gorgeous!
the water of the lake is breathtakingly beautiful!
Great pics, as usual!
JJ: Thanks! I do love my tulips:-}
Roshni: I love the reflections it can provide for picture taking too. Thanks!
Your tulips are just so radiantly beautiful! Loved the Honker family! Springtime is such fun to watch all the animal babies!
That orange is gorgeous and the geese are so cute. Don't you just love it when they follow each other around?
Amazing pictures Joan, I can't get over how far ahead of us you are in weather. We are just at the beginning of buds and blossoms and the tulips have just barely opened here in Alberta. I love tulips, I see them everyday when I walk by this one home as I walk. Apparently they are hard to bloom in our weather but whoever owns that house I pass have a wonderful patch of them in almost every colour. Take care/I care....Hugs
Those t ulips are awesome. I tried to plant some one time but they didn't grow. I think it's too hot here.
Oh, I do so love geese. They are such attentive parents!
And its hilarious when they give you the "evil eye"....
Love the pics
Shellmo: I love springtime for all the flowers and animals and the greens that are so bright. It is my favorite season in our yard for my gardens too, since I have over 500 tulips planted all around.
Grannyann: Yes, the ducklings are funny. I noticed when we were out taking photos that the ducklings were not listening to their Mama very well and she looked frustrated. It was hilarious. She kept honking at them and they'd ignore her so she would have to physically go and tap them with her beak to get them back to following her. I remember that with my own kids. ha
Bernie: It is good to know that SOMEONE is behind us in weather and blooming...I look at all these other blog sites and they are getting grapes on vines and blueberries, etc. Cripes, we still have some leaves just popping out. Did you know I lived in Ontario for over a year when I was little (1st grade)?
Loree: I forgot where you live? I would really miss not having tulips around in the spring.
Sue: They did certainly give us the "evil eye" besides the couple of honks...Ducks are much more friendly when they come up to our dock in the summer with their babies...in fact if we feed them bread, they practically let us feed them and their babies out of our hands. Hopefully, I can get some photos of that later this summer.
Tagged you on my post today so we can see even more of your great photos!
Canadian Geese can be quite aggressive; I have been hissed and chased many a time! Psh. Canadians...
I watched a camera review on a show last night and cried a little...somdeay I will have a camera like yours...I WILL I TELL YA (oh sorry for yelling!)
Gaston: Cool! I will hop over to your site next.

Insanity Kim: I KNOW you will get the same camera for your next birthday or Xmas...and when you do, I am your photo buddy to help you with any questions. It will work out just fine. I can't wait for this coming Saturday..I am taking an ALL DAY class on photography to learn my camera even better....I am addicted (in a good way!) ha
