Geese in Hieroglypics or Camouflage


During a visit to Durban Botanic Gardens today, this family of Egyptian Geese wandered up almost underfoot. I have had to sharpen the picture for the goslings to stand out a bit — they are well camouflaged.

It is good to see these birds again since official policy at the grandkids’ school changed to discourage them from the delightful situation where, during the season, they had a section of pool and a ramp allocated to them and participated in galas. People can be such idiots when it comes to health paranoia.
