Lovely shot of those magnificent Swans Heather. They are such a graceful bird for their size and to me are a symbol of tranquility. I love how the marsh grass is surrounding the swans, beautiful composition for a beautiful bird.

Thank you so much Debra, I totally agree with you! They are always graceful looking birds and so incredibly beautiful. I was able to sneak in quietly without disturbing them and get some nice shots. I love to listen to them communicate with one another.. the sound of a Trumpeter Swan is like music to my soul and unforgettable. They make the perfect symbol of tranquility.. I love that.

A pair of Trumpeter Swans with four cygnets enjoy a peaceful autumn afternoon. As long as the lakes remain open there will be Swan activity usually into November. Come freeze up any stragglers will head southward or across to the West Coast for the winter.
