I love swans and this year, I was hoping to see some little cygnets riding on mother's back but alas, I haven't seen this yet here in Guelph.

Thats a lovely photo. It would have been a nice relfection too if you had caught the swans head in the mirror image!
Happy Summer Pat!

It is a beautiful photo of a very dignified bird. I like it a lot.

I am back from my self-imposed vacation.

They are very regal birds aren't they?
I haven't seen any swean babies (cygnets?) yet this year either..

i think swans are one bird that have such elegant persona.....and i love telling this one. do u know why "swan song" is called so ......The expression, Swan Song has its roots in a myth.......a very poignant myth. It was once believed that upon death, the otherwise silent Mute Swan (in reality, it's not a completely silent bird, only less vocal than other swans)would sing one achingly beautiful song just before dying.

beautiful , right :)
