A young family of Canadian geese

We stayed at Hecla Oasis Resort in mid May when spring was springing. Flowers were starting to bloom, leaves to bud and eggs to hatch. Swallows darted above the ponds in the hotel’s grounds. We saw this family of 27 (27!) goslings as we walked the path to the lighthouse. They launched themselves into the water one by one when they saw us coming, mum and dad on either end. All together now: aaaah!
