One day earlier this week, in the early evening, I heard my husband yelling from the basement "hurry get your camera". So I grabbed the camera and ran downstairs in anticipation of what was awaiting me. There in our backyard was the cutest, loneliest gosling! It was just roaming around checking things out. Where was this little one's mother? It doesn't seem quite old enough to be on its own yet. I took some of these shots from the garage. I didn't dare get any closer as I was afraid to scare it away. After a few minutes it wandered off into the woods. Maybe there is a nest there. Maybe there is a family there. So I like to think. In any event, it made my day.
