Mute Swan in Evening Light

A brief visit to the marsh this evening rewarded me with an opportunity to watch the wild Mute Swan feeding in a quiet pool, highlighted by the last sunlight of the day. Rapidly gaining celebrity status in the area, it gave an encore performance that kept the carload of little kids in front of me amazingly quiet and still!

  1. I saw one today too. It is the first one that I’ve seen “in the wild.” I always thought they were all domesticated. (I teach human biology… good thing…obviously don’t know much about swans!)

    Love following your Nature Pics!

    • When all else fails, I lean on the Woodman Pond swan for a photo op! Glad you’ve seen one and are now connected first-hand to my stories. Also pleased to hear that you’re still following and enjoying my photo journal!!! Thanks
