Many thanks, I’m glad to know you like this one!
Puntastic Title! RH
Thanks! I’m glad you like my sense of humor. Sometimes the titles are the most difficult element of a post, no?
Love love love love love this.
Happy to hear that, thanks for your kind comment!
That is such a heartwarming and tender scene. Wonderfully captured!
Hi Gunta! Many thanks, I’m glad you like the adorable cygnets.
I find it interesting every time I see cygnets riding on their mother that they look so aware of the world around them.
You’re right, they do look very alert, thanks for the good observation! Glad you like this one.
Great shot! That’s so adorable.
Hi Gunilla, thanks so much, I’m glad you like the cygnets!
What a sweet photo! Those little ones must feel so warm and safe and wonderfully cared for. Thanks for this image.
Thanks so much, Deb, I’m glad you like this one.
adorable, I agree with above! We saw a bheron in a tree up high today , and one small young one near the water edge. Found out they have a new place in the next town up the MIssissippi River. Good to know they are not ALLgone:-) I’ll keep you posted We can’t ride on the MIssissippi River for another week due to flooding, so been in the back water areas riding on a bike path which has a lot of turtles crossing our path, we jump off our bikes to help them cross:-) Don’t want people running them over!
Robbie, I’m thrilled for you that you have at last seen some great blue herons there, wonderful. It is so kind of you to give the turtles an assist across the path, that brings a smile. Thanks for your kind comment, glad you like the cygnets.
Beautiful. I’ve always been amazed at that type of behaviour and hope to see it sometime. Wonderful shot..
Many thanks for your kind comment, Lyle. This year was a first for me in seeing the mother ferry the cygnets about, despite watching swans off and on for 15 years around here. Maybe you’ll find them next breeding season!
