Mother Goose Remembers

While making a quick stop to Bates Nut Farm for some dates, I spotted these geese at the children's petting zoo. Unfortunately, these lovely birds were fenced in and I wondered if my camera lens would focus on them instead of the metal chain link fence. My heart was broken when I looked into the bird's eyes. He seemed to be all alone, honking in pain, "Get me out of here!" Perhaps I threatened him as I moved closer to his guarded territory. After awhile, I noticed there were many birds and soon the whole place escalated with a chorus of boisterous 'bird bonks'! So, I said my goodbyes rather hastily and did manage to rest my lens between the spaces to get better photos later on.
