All these photos are taken in Western Springs lake, my favourite part of Auckland. I take it for granted now, I live about 15 minutes walk, and I used to drive pass everyday.
This is a remake of the Ugly Duckling, New Zealand version. Our swans are black. May be our swans are banished from the Northern hemisphere by their beautiful white cousins. Or was it their clean pristine white feathers turned black after they fly all the way now here. I believe in Perth, Australia, they also have black swans.
Ducklings, look at the ugly monsters, don't play with them.
This is a repeat. I love this so much that I want to show it again and again.
This is not a photo shop.
A Sunday outing at my favourite Western Springs park got me all excited. Do count, how many goslings there are. I counted 17 or 18.
Ka Pai aka good job, Goosey Lucy and Daddy Gander.
In a previous post,http://ann-mythoughtsandphotos.blogspot.com/2009/09/goslings-in-western-springs.html I mentioned there were aunties, and indeed, there was an adult goose tagging along mummy and daddy. They swam a whole stretch of over one hundred meters each way like a fleet of naval boats.
I invite you all to come to New Zealand to witness this marvelous sight.
