Of course, they don’t much look like this now (they’ve grown up so much so quickly!).

Debut of the ’09 Cygnets

with one comment

A quick add on entry this morning to what’s already scheduled to celebrate what some of you passing the duck pond may already have seen — the birth of the next brood of swans! This year our favorite mute swans have hatched four cygnets, cute as could be.

The proud parents are standing on guard, so especially make sure you don’t get too close, as swans are aggressive, and the father will try to chase you away. (Also, why stress them out? (This photo was taken with a telephoto lens through a natural “blind”, from which they could not see me, and is very closely cropped.))
