Photographer's Note

The Old Town of Aarhus is not just about houses, there are animals in the town, too. Horsedrawn carriages take visitors around the place against payment, they keep bees for honey, there's a henhouse, ducks and a small group of geese. The geese roam freely through the town begging - often more like demanding - their share of any bread eaten within the town's perimeters. On my last visit to The Old Town I couldn't fail to notice that the geese have produced a brood of 4 goslings. These goslings can't be very old yet, because although they're about the size of a grown chicken, they still have the fuzzy feathers of the newly-hatched.
Fortunately for us, the geese and goslings didn't show up before Milloup and I had had time to enjoy our lunch sitting in my favourite courtyard by the brook overlooking part of the town. Actually, I'd just packed away the paper and was about to get the camera out, when the noisy group of 4 grown geese with the 4 goslings came striding down the alleyway towards our position. After making some hissing noises and threatening wingflapping they finally decided it was safe to take the goslings past us and into the brook where this photo was taken. To me it looks a bit like the hind gosling is whispering to the front one: "Watch out, she ate grandpa for Christmas" - which - as a matter of fact - I didn't ;-))
Treatment: Crop, saturation +10, USM and resize.
