Hey, Wait for Me!
Thanks to Ben Huberman and WordPress for their Weekly Photo Challenge: Room. It was a surprise to see that the mother swan had room on her back for all five of her babies, tucked between those enormous wings.
Thanks to Paula for her wonderful Thursday’s Special Non-Challenge. This was a very special moment.
Thanks to Ailsa for her Weekly Travel Theme: Unexpected. Seeing each of the five cygnets riding on the female swan’s back was an unexpected high point of that day at the lake.
Thanks to Sue for her A Word A Week Challenge: Happy. Cygnet number five may have felt very happy when it was his turn to clamber up on his mother’s back, or at least I felt happy for him.
Congrats to Stewart Monckton for his 100th Wild Bird Wednesday, and thanks again for hosting the Wild Bird Wednesday challenge.
Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
