Canada Geese Family Portraits (Two Photographs)

Generally speaking Canada Geese have a well deserved bad reputation for descending en masse where they are unwanted and leaving a mess behind. I am writing this when the Geese have for the most part moved on (these photos were taken in May). While photos of chicks alone can make great photographs, I think there can be more impact in family portraits. Family portraits can be much more of a challenge given the different sizes of all the players, and to make it somewhat intimate you want as much of the parents as you can get. One other note when walking towards groups of  “teenaged” geese I was surprised to see them all get up and rush towards us. I suspect that someone had fed them and they thought all humans were as generous. As I have no idea what is best for the chicks, I refrain from feeding them.
