[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I followed this Canada Geese family for the whole season last year.
The parents took very good care of theirs babies and they succeeded to raise them all up.
I have many pictures showing them growing up, until, in the fall, they were almost adults and moved away.
As workshop I posted a wider angle shot with their mom watching.

I took this picture last spring, in the small park (Wabukayne) across the street from my house, where I take most of my pictures.
Hand held, no flash, not from a blind.
