The loose goose


IMG_3553

This pair of geese was wandering along the river in Kruger Park. One had just exited from a leisurely paddle, avoiding the crocodiles.  He is now keen to catch up with a friend and a good grooming.

The Egyptian Goose is a member of the duck, goose, and swan family “Anatidae”. It is native to Africa, south of the Sahara and the Nile Valley. The ancient Egyptians considered Egyptian Geese sacred.
