CFFC: Partners for Life

The other day I spotted a pair of geese:

1A GOOSE.jpg

Excited, I moved in for a closer shot:

But no matter how much I tried, the goose just wouldn’t let me click his mate. It honked and glared and pretended to be interested in the distal most piece juicy stem.


Can you beat that?

The typical Indian male I supposed and walked away (or at least pretended to but the goose wasn’t that much of a goose – it wasn’t buying or budging).

Until I really walked away. That’s when I noticed:


She was injured or ill and he was merely trying to keep away an opportunistic predator.


Blessed to witness such a rare and precious sight.

  1. These are such cute and adorable shots of the geese, Dahlia. I love how you managed to capture them from different angles, and each photo is in sync with your words. Sad to hear one of them might be injured. No wonder it is sitting all bunched up like that. It looks like there is something wrong with its leg – it is sticking our rather oddly. I hope it is okay. The other one sure has a kind heart and looking out for his fallen comrade. You know, whether we’re human or animal, we’re all conditioned to feel this thing called love ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
