The ducks had trust in the two little girls who were approaching.

Actually, the ducks were Canadian geese. Elegant creatures that added class to the playground.

One girl’s name was Brooklyn, and her mother assured her the geese would not attack.

Brooklyn’s younger sister threw grass at them, offering it as food.

The other day on National Geographic’s safariLIVE!, they showed rare footage of a baby elephant charging at the nature guides’ jeep and then retreating. Charging and retreating. Never coming closer than within 2-3 feet, its ears flopping as its mother loomed in the background.

The guides and cameraman held fast, laughing at the fledgling’s repeated bluffs.
