ALAMEDA, CA — Steve Gorman snapped an adorable photo on Friday at the pond in Alameda’s Crown Beach State Park.
“The new goslings are hatching now, and have already learned to swim, walk, and feed themselves,” Steve said. “Here, a couple of siblings rest on a warm day, in the shade of their mother’s wing. Goslings learn to swim 24 hours after hatching, but won’t learn to fly until they are 2-3 months old.”
Thank you for the great photo, Steve, along with the nature lesson!

We’re looking for high-resolution images that reflect the beauty and fun that is Northern California, and that show off your unique talents.
