Daily Pick: Canadian Artists (June, 2012)

..…as a storm approaches and thunder strikes its warning signal….. this little family (young ones hatched approximately May 10) of Canada Geese head for their safe area on the other side of the pond…the lighting here was horrible and I was rushing to get my lens cap on and my camera under protection from the raindrops …but the sight of these little ones, protected at both ends by Mum and Dad, just captivated me as they were a lonely group out on the choppy waters…but as calm as could be under the guidance of their … Mum and Dad. Nature just gets it soooo right.
