Looking for shade

I took these photos a week ago. It was one of our first warm days after a very cold early April. I was enjoying the heat, but I noticed that these gosslings were staying in their mother's shadow.

When she decided to take a little rest, her shadow shrunk, leaving them partially exposed to the sun.

They're smarter than I was as a kid - no skin cancer for them in later life!
