Camera Critters in The Netherlands

These geese seem to be getting ready to go to church on a soft, surreal, misty morning.
"Okay, whose is whose? Which are my ducklings and which ones belong to the mallards?"
We hardly ever see a herd of herons in a field, so maybe they're having an election for Head Heron.

I always used to be amazed by Canada Geese in Europe. Were there any?? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Churches in the background are such a familiar scene in Holland (The Netherlands). Brings back memories.

What wonderful shots, Kay. I think my favourite is of the ducks but your first photo is elegiac and the third is impressive. Okay, I love them all:-)

It appears to be a perfect landscape and environment for those animals. Picturesque, too.

That's a LOT of herons, Kay! And the top image really captures a foggy morning in the lowlands.

They look so funny !

Ha, ha on the Head Heron. They always look so stern when you come upon them in the fields. I feel as though I've stumbled into some secret Masonic rite :-)
