Canada Fuzzies


While visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains recently, I had the opportunity to photograph these Canada Goose goslings. The photos were taken over several days at two different lakes and of two different flocks.

These are simply stunning photos, Brian! I am always awed by your photography - you manage to capture the absolute best shots - but I am sure you spend plenty of time waiting patiently for those shots! Just wonderful today!

Adorable meter has spiked & I don't think it'll ever come back down from this post! OMG those lil ones are just too darn cute, adorable, precious, & oh so hugable!!! =)))

Pamela Gordon said...

I guess I could "ditto" all the above comments! These are just the best close ups pics of these little fuzzy goslings! I see some nearby here so must go and check if the babies are hatched. Have a great week!

Tezzie said...

So very adorable! Love their fuzzy little bums ;)

Canadian geese frequent Finland, as well...I just wish the Finns would stop hinting that since I'm from Canada, I'm somehow responsible for the fact that the birds sh*t so much, making a mess of the public parks! LOL!

Lina Gustina said...

I admired your shots. All of them.

Fantastic photos, Brian. The goslings are adorable. I love how they swim in a line behind the parents.

Mina fotostunder said...

WOW these is amazing shots!!

Carletta said...

AWESOME!
No need to search any further for the cutest photos of the day. :)
The closeups of them in their downy goodness just make you want to cuddle them.
Excellent captures Brian!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Ah those are precious. I am surprised the parents allowed you to get so close, or you had a pretty strong lens at work.

Karen said...

Oh my! Fabulous captures!

Denise said...

Fantastic shots, each one a smile bringer.

Stunning photos!!!!!!
Great post!

Dina said...

Big "tug at your heart" cute! I love the one where all of the babies are huddled together.

Andrew said...

Wonderful images Brian... they so cute. It's hard to believe but they oil the eggs (it makes them infertile) to reduce the numbers on my little patch and a cull of the adult birds is taking place in the Lake District.

Deb said...

wow those are awesome photos...the babies are too cute..

Andee said...

Wonderful series, each one was adorable. I love the shots of the goslings with their mouths open. Great captures.

NatureFootstep said...

so many gorgeous shots. How did you manage to come that close? They are really sweet.

Springman said...

BJK doing the warm and fuzzy?
Great shots Brian.
I know you only publish the creme de la creme, I'm just wondering how many C.goose shots you took in those two days?
Yeah, we Michigan boys will stop at nothing to get the job done correctly.
Cheers!

Oh my ... I have been looking for these babies around here and not having any luck. Don't know where they all are. But, your babies are the best I have seen. Your pictures are spectacular and the babies are so cute, I can't stop looking at them. Thank you, you made my day.

Debbie said...

Arija said...

Gorgeous, all of them either singly or a whole kindergarden full. So fluffy and cuddly, yet already so independent. Cuteness personified!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh they're so darling. That one little one with his mouth open "Feed Me" -- is just adorable. I have a love-hate relationship with Canada Geese, but this post has definitely tipped me way over to the 'love' side. I do hope we see some babies when we get back to Oregon (where we either get or have to live with them!)

Meggie said...

I'm sure I can't say anything that was not said in the previous 44 comments....but, I want you to know, Meggie on the Prairie enjoyed each and everyone of these photos. I am in awe of your "work".
