Spring-Summer - 144

A pair of
Lesser Whistling Ducks
are mighty amused ...
... to see a
real Goose ...
... that is smaller
than them ...
... though
they themselves are
fairly small ...

There is a hint
of ...
... admiration
as well ...

Cotton Pygmy Goose
... arguably the
smallest among geese
... look
more like kids'
small stuffed toys

Watch them in the
following video-clips ...
