Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from a brief stop at Loess Bluffs NWR (formerly called “Squaw Creek NWR”) in northwest Missouri, while on my way home from photographing in the Columbia River Gorge. As I drove the 10-mile refuge auto tour route, I came upon a pair of adult Canada Geese with 8 young goslings.
As I drove closer to them, the adults rounded up the little ones and headed for the water. The tip? It’s always best to “get your ducks in order (including geese), before proceeding”:
