Canada Geese by David Turnbaugh
Fred's Anecdotal Note
A tense drama unfolds in this hand-painted MILFORD cachet. The swift current of a country stream plus an alert and aroused mother act as deterrents to keep a red fox away from a nest of eggs. The beautiful fox will ponder the situation a few moments before wandering off in search of an easier meal. Having secured the safety of her brood-to-be, the Canada goose will return to the nest to keep her eggs warm.
