A photographer had a wonderful time with a lovely family of geese at the Saskatchewan riverbank near his place in Saskatchewan, Canada, throughout the summer of 2020.
When Digout Mike decided to pursue his journey as a home photographer, he began to notice simple little things in the world around him, starting with the wildlife.
That was when he came across the groove fellows.
“I was out every night walking on the riverbank looking for beavers and, of course, there was a lot of geese activity as they were coming from the south and looking for a place to nest,” Digout told The Dodo.
Digout spent quite some time observing the goose, which he admitted to The Dodo that the fighting scene between the animals caught his attention.
“It got to be quite entertaining to watch the geese fighting over places to nest and protecting their nests,” he said.
This photographer decided to add the goose gang into his photographic portfolio when he noticed that the goose was expecting new chicks as summer came.
“They’re so cute when they’re little—like little tennis balls with legs. So I started taking pictures of the goslings while I was waiting for the beavers to come around,” Digout recalled when he saw some hatching eggs.
On one lucky night, a seemingly regular goose mom took her offspring up the river for a swim, and Digout was there.
It first started with 16 goslings, but the gang and its amount of cuteness would expand during the following days.
On another day, it built up to 20, which was pretty fine. Then, 30, sure wow, that could have been a lot already, right? No, not yet! 47 just several days later!
According to Dodo, the mother was actually babysitting the kids from other goose parents too, which explains the enormous amount of goslings.
“It was incredible how calm she was with so many goslings around. She seems like such a patient mom,” Digout observed.
The animal lover channel added that the geese formed three separate families, and the parents he first encountered kept on with their 25 goslings.
The baby geese enjoy their time under the loving protection of their guardians.
It must be splashing time for this little furry ball here.
Goslings siblings and friends all together.
