Here are the four goslings up a bit closer. If you look closely you will see that they are already starting to get feathers! This photo isn't as clear as I'd like but they will NOT let me get very close.

This is what I have been waiting for all Spring! I love lilacs. We had two bushes of them when I was growing up and I always took a big bouquet to my teachers. Now we have 3 small bushes but they bloom heavily and are getting bigger each year. Thankfully the frost we had last night didn't hurt them.

The parents are very protective so it is very difficult to get close. I'm thinking I will try again tomorrow with a zoom lens. We have had this pair of Canadians for several years. This is the first year that they have had more than one gosling survive. I "think" we have had 5 previous babies. The first two flew away after they were grown - presumably to find mates. The other three are still here although one of them flies away from time to time but always seems to come back.

Monster was sleeping on top of the DVR (where he isn't supposed to be). I didn't wake him up - he looked too innocent to disturb.
I'm not sure how I got out of the habit of posting my Project 365 photos, but I did. Now I need to get back on track posting them (and other things).
