great photos. Question though, why would people hunt swans? I wonder if they eat the meat?

Jeanne said...

What beautiful photos of this amazing bird. When i was in Maryland recently at a musuem, there were a lot of swan decoys. How sad to hunt these beautiful birds.

Love to see the Trumpeter Swan. When they winter here all we ever see are them in farmers fields eating never looking so graceful in the water. thanks

I was going to sing you a song about swans at dawn
and then have you sing along
but I got the words all wrong and
it ended up being my swan song!
