A Canadian photographer captured how an adult female specimen directs the first swims of up to 47 newborns.
Mike Digout is a Canadian who is used to going out with his camera and portraying the wildlife around the Saskatchewan River. A few weeks ago, Digout captured a tender image that has made its protagonists and himself a viral phenomenon.
It is a female goose, which led a row of 47 chicks in their first swimming practices. Some of the babies were his, but most were from other females, from different families. According to The Dodo, this phenomenon is common in suburban areas with many nests. Some adults take care of babies in the community so that others can rest.
Digout, whose specialty is photographing beavers, even saw the female guarding 17 chicks with her wings.
On other occasions, the photographer has captured the female with her partner, a male, sharing the effort of caring for, watching over and keeping the chicks safe.
Mike Digout shares his photos on Facebook, where it has gone viral.
