Between family responsibilities and uncooperative weather, I haven't been able to get out to take pictures this week, so I once again dug into my files. Last year I visited to a National Wildlife Refuge in upstate New York. Prior to leaving on this trip, I had been watching some nesting swans at a nearby pond here at home. Upon return, I discovered that there were now eight tiny babies.
Luck was really on my side, because the swans had been nesting across the pond, but for some reason, they had moved the cygnets to the closer side, so I was able to get very close to them.
