Uncle Tree’s Fowl Play

Baby Geese at Oak Lake

Uncle Tree made a play to get close, but he didn’t pass Mum’s security check.

Cute babies

The babes hesitated and peeked, but followed Mum thereafter.

Ganders gallantly stood their ground for grazing hungry goslings.

In the meanwhile, Mum taught impromptu getaway maneuvers.

From heron out, I declare — birds must stand still when posing!

Okay, besides this guy, who’s got the gull to oppose me?

Who's got the gull?

That’s what I thought, good gully.

  1. Great post! I wanted to scroll down in a hurry to see your next photo and quip. I’m patiently biding my time ’til the goslings and ducklings are in my neck of the woods. The camera will be clicking away as they all run this way and that … 1/4 of the photos will come out, and the rest, as you know, are just a blur. I’m looking forward to it because gulls just wanna have fun!

  2. These pics were taken back in June, Lloyd.
    The two kinds of gulls were very plentiful that day
    on the biggest man-made mud-hole around here — Branched Oak Lake.

  3. Branched Oak Lake might look prettier on the map than it really is, George. These things happen.

    The best thing about it for me? It’s only a 15 minute drive away our house.

  5. Thank you so much, angelbeam! πŸ™‚ Glad you enjoyed my silliness.
    Uncle Tree figures most critters understand him and see his true manliness as safe and harmless.

  6. Very funny post! The goslings were so cute. I felt joyful after reading it.
