Inspiration

One of the 3 surviving Cygents out on the water today. Caught this perfect little moment when it was transfixed by a leaf. Really did make my day...oh and they couldn't quite reach the leaf ;)

The three seem to be doing well and look healthy enough, father is doing good job so far looking after these 3 and defending their home.

        Thank you. Unfortunately it didn't go well after this and all cygnets were lost, but that's how it goes sometimes

              It was a happy picture originally.



              Over the past month or so, my local swans nest got attacked and the female was killed. So with just the male trying to raise three cygnets it was always going to be hard, but he tried...this shot was taken just after the attack, so was a kind of hopeful picture
