By the time we got to the parks in Hawera this weekend, there was bread floating everywhere, so the ducks and geese were not very interested in us. [If you feel moved to tell me how bad bread is for birds, please don't.]
Well, except for this one lone goose at the smaller park, Naumai Park. He/she seemed to have a slight neurological problem but was quite happy to have some human companionship, becoming silent and attentive when we got close, even posing for the camera. Hubby named him Ryan. Ryan (Wasa) Gosling.
I was pleasantly surprised at the reflection in the shot below, as the water was not pretty after lots of rain.
