Amongst the lily pads

This family of Egyptian Geese was spotted at the Boardwalk Casino complex yesterday morning


Mama goose and the three "ugly ducklings" taking to the water


They have settled into their new home quite happily and do not seem mind the presence of humans, or should I say that they tolerate us


For one more picture go to Port Elizabeth Daily Photo

Oh wow - they are raising a family at the Boardwalk? That's fantastic. Love those little goslings! I remember when I was a kid a pair of Egyptian geese alighted in our garden in Walmer one morninng and were quite happy to potter around on hour lawn. My dad took a ton of pictures and later they flew off, never to return, but I've always remembered them fondly.
