Welcome visitors

We were so happy to return home last Friday after all of our errands. Even happier to see some swans way out there.

They were mostly sleeping and we had no idea how long they had been there. Again we had nine Trumpeter swans but we had two cygnets  ( last time only one ) and now one less adult.  This young one in the middle prefers to rest standing up.

We simply drop anything we are doing to just sit ( actually we usually stand ) and watch to see what might happen next. These guys decided to go for a walk.

It wasn’t long before they all stood up, shook themselves and started walking to the right one after the other.

Where are they going? Here you see the two cygnets ( the darker swans ).

Now what? Time to stop and have a meeting.

Looks like the majority rules and the swans now are walking to the left.

It is getting late and the light is fading. This was our sunset last Friday with the swans under the arrow – still facing to the left!

An abrupt and quick turn to the right and we have an immediate lift off.

A blur of white feathers as they rise and move on, ever so quickly.

Well that was a lovely welcome home.

  1. Nice Welcome Home.
    Should set one Camera up on a tripod for Videos. You can print stills from that video.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

    I am laughing. I guess it takes a while in swan-don to figure out the exact moment when the time is right for take off. Glad you got to see it. And thanks for letting us in on it as well.
