Growing Goslings

This beautiful afternoon three families of goslings were busy along the east bank of the river by the Water Street parking lot. The family above was, I suspect, a newer set than those I saw last week, while the ones below, which probably are one of the families I photographed last week, are already looking more goose-like. However, the apparent difference between the two groups may lie merely in the fact that in the photo below you can see how long their legs are. Click on either photo for a much larger version; you can really appreciate the texture of their silky-fluffy down.
