[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Goslings are very cute with their color and soft fur which could be many shades of yellowish green. They grow very fast into adulthood. As soon as the goslings hatch they are immediately capable of walking, swimming and finding their own food (a diet similar to the adult geese). Parents are often seen leading their goslings in a line, usually with one adult at the front, and the other at the back. While protecting their goslings, parents often violently chase away nearby creatures, from small blackbirds to lone humans that approach, after warning them by giving off a hissing sound and will then attack with bites and slaps of the wings if the threat does not retreat or has seized a gosling. Most of the species that prey on eggs will also take a gosling.

Hello Muhammad
Awe, these goslings are very sweet. Your low view shows off their fuzzy down nicely. Nice composition, lighting and detail. They look like Canada Goose Goslings.
