Geese of wildcat creek

My next door neighbor has the most beautiful geese in the world. She also has a lovely little creek that these beauties love to swim in. I have always wanted to get a picture of them in the creek, but the timing has never been right. We went over last night to see the new baby pigs and new goats. She said they were down at the creek, so I grabbed my camera and hauled the kids down there for a few shots.
They are the loveliest looking geese I have ever see. They look like they are wearing tutu's for swan lake around their bodies. They are absolutely adorable.

The gray one is recovering from a recent raccoon attack. Thankfully the raccoon was scared off before doing any real danger. The goose is recovering nicely. Hope you enjoy these beauties.

These geese are called Sebastopol Geese. They are the only curly feathered geese.

Oh my Lord those are the most beautiful geese I have seen as well! Love that little tutus! :)

Hope you faired the weather well. I'm so glad it's cooled down some.
