Almost every morning when I come into town headed for work I come by the “Duck Pond” and for the last few days there has been a variety of wildlife there. I assume they spent the night at the pond as a respite before continuing their journey South. So I have three images for you today.
Even though I was running just a little later than normal when I saw these two Trumpeter Swans and their 4 signets I had to pull over and capture an image of them. The light was still fairly soft and the pond was calm so I ripped off 165 images trying to capture one that had all six of them in the same frame. They were not very cooperative.
It’s been a challenging week at work and I have not had the opportunity to do much photography. It may sound silly but when I stopped for that brief moment and photographed the Swans I felt a peace and enjoyment that I had not experienced all week.
As it is in life the Mother stayed pretty close to the four young ones while the Father led the group and many times got ahead of them, but always looking back to make sure there was no danger or anyone getting left behind. 🙂
I was really happy to see this bunch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this large of a swan family before.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
