Goose Family Picnic (2nd try)
12 years ago

This was taken a few days ago at a little pond near where I live. I counted a total of eight goslings and four adult geese. I think two of those might have been "subadults," who are still hanging around the birth family and not paired up themselves yet.

A nice family outing!

First, thank you all for the positive feedback! 

In case you missed my fauna gallery, here are a few deer pic's. We have a regular herd of deer (±3-dozen) that run the canyon at the back of our property. Every once in a while, momma will bring out the baby(s) to graze...

These were taken from my window (thus a little fuzzy) of my home office (O work for myself); I love being able to up from my computer and see things like this.

Cool pictures indeed! Thank you for sharing!

I adore skunks as well, and we have a few visiting our yard too. I just never seem to find the camera handy!

Here's a few from the archives ('04). We have exotic birds so extra/left over seed gets dumped in the backyard on the feeders or on this one stump with a huckleberry bush growing out of it. (I'll post pic's of the "Huckleberry Bush Gang" of chipmunks later)

Well, mama skunk came sniffing around one spring morning, with four of her kids!


"...is it safe, mom?"


"Wow, look at all this good food!"


Notice the one youngster with the mostly white stripe? (far left) S/he proved to be the most adventurous of the group.

This is a Hawk Moth (I think) who I found on my chilli pepper plant last year - he's about 3 to 4 inches long - BIG Caterpillar! He devoured all the chillis and then disappeared. i didn't remove him, I was so impressed with his appetite...chillis.....do you think they have taste buds? I was impressed!

I have a pair of Cardinals that visit me daily for food. Sorry the picture is a bit blurred - full zoom required and not a particularly good camera.

He's a really perky chap and very vocal, his "wife" is quite shy and only feeds once he's checked the feeder out and made sure the neighbours cat isn't about!

This picture was taken yesterday in the park. While on the trail, we were greeted by a mom red squirrel with 3 babies ... so cute and so small ...  I personally thought they are too small for this late time in the year, ands hope the real winter won't start too soon, so the little babies have more time to grow and learn.

some of my closer neighbors.This Malcom. He is handicapped in the left leg.  It is shorter than the right so he has quite a limp.

Up Close with Malcom

This is Carlton, a canada goose.  He was the first to make a neighborly overture by coming on up to the patio.  zhr id s grntlr snf not very sggressive featherperson.

My Friend, Carlton



This franklin, the only white goose on the lake.  He is very friendly and recenty became the father of 2 goslings.  One a mixed breed like his mom, and one a white one like his dad.  Franklin eats from ny hand.

This is Salt and Pepper.  Only God knows what kink of ducks they are.  They are the only 2 that look lik this .  they have a quack that souns like they have laryngitis.  They are not fast like the other ducks so I put their hen scratch behind one of the bushes.

Pepper and Salt



And lastly is Margaret Mother Goose.  She is the oldest of all the geese.  I've been told she used to reigh the colony with terror and was a champion gooser.  But she is old now and the others are getting even with her.  Dhe eats from my hand and even let's me pet her.

As soon as they are big enough to follow their mother outside, I will figure out how she got in and maybe close that hole before the squirrels decide to take residence too!  Until then, I will check up on them once in a while!

Gazelle in snow

Sorry it isn't too clear, but here is a picture of a gazelle in Jerusalem - I only managed to get this close because the unusually heavy snow of January 2000 forced it to come out into the open to get food. Used to live near the Jerusalem forest and catch glimpses of them all the time.

Fantastic shot - that's a red billed tropic bird! Wow!

A few of them were hanging around down south off the Red Sea town of Eilat. Of course when I went down to Eilat for the weekend I couldn't find them, but I did see another local rarity - the tropical brown booby. No photo I'm afraid - of course it appeared the one afternoon I didn't have my camera to hand...
