Mother and child - # -8/120

Great news from Ham Pond! Some time ago I told you the story of the demise of the resident swan family because of the uncontrolled dog. This year the new resident swan (who arrived after a season with no swans at all occupying the pond) found a mate, and four new cygnets hatched out about 3 days ago. I saw the new babies shortly after hatching, but had no camera. Here is my very first, carefully selected, shot (I'll show all four tomorrow).

Camera: Olympus E3

  2. Perfection!

    Such a noble bird... wished they had some around here. The only large waterfowl we get here are Canada Geese.

  4. I can hear Saint-Saens in my head - oh, no wait - I think it's Peer Gynt.
