On a brighter note...

The Trumpeter Swans have arrived for their winter stay ~ a swan song on a different note.  Their 'trumpets' can be heard on the posted video taken yesterday.

  1. Cracking first photo Glo. Enlarged all the feather detail shows beautifully.

    1. Thanks, John. The swans have such a wide wingspan so I was happy to capture the photo that showed off the feathers. They were splashing and doing all sorts of weird maneuvers, so I'll have to see if I can get a few more of more downloaded photos sorted.

    1. Thanks, Nikki ~ the sound of their wings as they were approaching was amazing ~ some years back I was there in foggy conditions and I could hear their wings beating so loudly as they came towards me! Something I'll never forget!

  4. The first shot is a beauty. We get them here but it's years since I got close to any. Great to see them.

    1. Thanks Flighty ~ They are majestic birds, and their trumpeting and head bobbing are entertaining ~ yes, sometimes it's a noisy place, but very cool!
