...and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you..."
All My Loving

These are my pets. I have three geese and a few ducks and chickens.
The geese are so sweet, always staying close-by but never too close so we can't touch! I never saw them fight with each other.

Frome Wikipedia:
Goose (plural geese) is the general English name for a considerable number of birds, belonging to the family Anatidae. This family also includes swans, most of which are larger than geese, and ducks, which are smaller.

The picture well reflects your love to your pets, Lurdes. They look like they came out of a story book, so white, so immaculate!

Hi Lurdes
Good image this. You have detail in the white feathers. I might have removed some of the distracting background. However you have captured this moment well. TFS.

A lovely view! A decisive moment and a good PP; if your camera permits you should use a larger aperture to obtain a blurred background.

What a beautiful shot and such beautiful words to go with it:) you have matched them up very well.....


Hi Lurdes, wonderful and lovely composition, nice presentation, splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Lurdes,

Like the expression of the goose in the backside. Looked so comfortable being with its partner. Also like the bright colour with the black frame. Very well done.

Regards, Emma

Magnifique et attendrissant.
C'est très bien réussi.

Les paroles de cette chanson des Beatles sont à propos! Bon choix de titre.
