After these goslings had a little swim they were tuckered out and came to shore for a little nap in the warm sunlight.

Mark thank you for the comment. I did enjoy shooting this image. I was amazed at how close the parent geese let me get to them, as they are wild. The brood had just had a swim in the lake and were worn out. so they came to shore and sat down in the sun and went to sleep, except for this little one.

I like the contrast the gosling's tongue provides in this shot - well caught!

Blue Billy thanks for commenting. I agree the red tongue helps the shot
