Growing up so fast!


A few months back I shared photos of the new hatchlings down on the lake and when I visited again last week here they were nearly all grown up.

Their mother was on the bank

Across the lake more swans were enjoying late afternoon sun



It was so pretty!



A fine patriotic barn for Tom's Barn Collective HERE

Linking with Eileen for Saturday's Critters HERE

Happy Weekend!

  2. I can't remember if I mentioned before we had two Trumpeter Swans land next to our cabin, but their visit was so brief (and during the rain) that I didn't get any pictures. They are so white! - Margy

  10. Hi Christine.

    Beautiful Mute Swans.
    Best funny they are born white then they become gray / brown and then again shining white.

    Groettie from Patricia.

  18. Ha Christine, ja de jonge zwanen groeien snel op, binnenkort worden ze weer door hun ouders achter gelaten. De ouders verstoten de jongen, zij moeten het dan zelf zien te redden. Best hard van zo'n mooie dier als de zwaan is.
    Maar dat is het leven.
    Groet kees.
