The Ducks Are On The Pond

Or at least the geese are on the lake. One of the cute things of spring around here are the goose (geese(?)) families on Hamilton Lake.

This year there is one family with eight little ones, another with two, and at least one with three. (It seems like I've seen two different three-little-one families, but I can't be sure.) On the lake, the mother and father geese form little protective convoys with their babies--a big goose front and rear and the little ones all gathered between, often swimming in a row straight enough to have been surveyed.

I suspect the folks who live directly on the lake are not so smitten with this cuteness, particularly as the little ones get larger, but like most babies, they are very cute now.
