Goose and Gosling on Lake - Parental Concern vs. Strong-Willed Child

Concerned mother goose watching the rest of her goslings over her should as she pursues one strong willed gosling that has set a course and will not deviate no matter how desperately the mother goose calls to it. The mother goose continues to keep a close proximity gosling but it visibly disturbed at not having all her goslings together. The gosling shows no concern but rather is the image of stolid determination. I snapped this capture as the epitome of the eternal struggle between concerned parent and strong willed child - the parent in this case doing its best to offer that necessary freedom to grow but showing the ultimate cracks in confidence we all feel the moment our child exercises that freedom for the first time.
