The First Peek

There are two swan nests on the lake and I had my first peek at two cygnets on one of the nests.  I did not want to paddle too close to the nest, so the photos are cropped and I did not see the cygnet tucked next to the swan in the first photo until the photos were loaded onto the computer.  I was able to see the other cygnet when the mother stood up, but I was surprised to see two little beaks in the third photo.

    1. This was my first chance to see the adorable tiny cygnets in the nest and I would have stayed longer, but the male swan was making his return and Gabby did not seem as interested as me.

    1. Thank you! The six cygnets from the other nest are already in the water and I wonder how many will be joining them from this nest.

    1. Thank you! I was hoping for another chance to see them in the nest, but the young cygnets are now busy swimming with their parents.
