It seemed like a long wait last spring before we finally saw the young appear. We came upon this gosling in late May. He had swum over to the log and it seems we spotted each other at the very same instant. He was a distance from the adults so I was glad that he had climbed up onto the log. The lake can be a dangerous place for the new born with its fair share of snapping turtles and mink. Shortly after I took this shot he swam off to join his parents!
