A Canadian gosling endulging in a lake-side snooze

I was relaxing on the rocky shores of my Aunt's lake in Tolland, Massachuesetts, and a flock of Canadian geese waddled up to greet the waves; a few hundred feet away from me. Being the animal lover that I am, I could not resist sneaking closer to the flock. I was able to get just close enough to zoom in on this adorable gosling, clearly enjoying his sweet nap.
