ABC Wed: Letter G,

The students from Diocesan school for girls to help us build our pizza oven.

This is not a photo shop, I haven't learnt how to do it.

A Sunday outing this afternoon at my favourite Western Springs park got me all excited. Do count, how many goslings there are. I counted 17 or 18. Ka Pai aka good job, Goosey Lucy and Daddy Gander.

In a previous post,http://ann-mythoughtsandphotos.blogspot.com/2009/09/goslings-in-western-springs.html I mentioned there were aunties, and indeed, there was an adult goose tagging along mummy and daddy. They swam a whole stretch of over one hundred meters each way like a fleet of naval boats.

I invite you all to come to New Zealand to witness this marvelous sight.

Sea Gulls are bossy birds. They squawk very loudly, and they monopolise big and best spaces. Once I was at Potters park. The weather was very hot. All the pigoens were outside in the field, the sea gulls were in the rotunda shielded from the hot sun.

Did they bake Pizzas later?

I love the Goose, Gander and babies pictures. They are such beautiful birds all decked out in white.

That is a great project for the kids.

You don't need photoshop. Your pictures are wonderful.

Clever, and useful, to build a pizza oven. We have a lot of gulls here too, always muscling in!

We have lots of bossy and loud sea gulls around here (since we're right on the Pacific). They can be very cheeky trying to get at your picnics! Great shots of your girls at work. Have a fabulous week,
