Gosslings on the move

I can't believe they are getting this close!
We parked our wagon by the pond to look at the black birds. The toddlers thought the birds were eating the water. We spotted several birds in the low grass, or on water logs.
As we sat here quietly, the group of gosslings slowly came closer and closer, but stopped about 15 feet away to eat grass. It was so nice to watch, and the children were speechless! The geese were so comfortable near us that some of them sat down to preen themselves.
