My Cousin Bart and his wife Vetty came to visit Auckland. I took them to western springs, it is autumn, there were no goslings.
Mum and Dad used to keep geese.
am repeating these photos because I love them very much. It was this
time last year when I went to my favourite park and saw these three
adult geese taking the goslings for a Sunday swim. They swam a whole
stretch of over one hundred meters each way like a fleet of naval boats.
Do count and see how many goslings there are. I counted 17 or 18. Others counted as many as twenty. Ka Pai aka good job, Goosey Lucy and Daddy Gander.
I observe the geese, I often see another adult goose tagging along
mummy and daddy. They share protecting responsibilites and fight off
other grown geese when they come too near to the goslings.
I invite you all to come to New Zealand to witness this marvelous sight.
