Swan song

There’s a nature preserve in Cape May Point, just across the street from our friends’ house.  We walked there daily, ending at the beach.  Birding is one of the main pastimes in Cape May and although I’m not a big birder (as opposed to a Big Bird-er), we saw quite a few, including these swans.  When swans take off, they sound quite a lot like planes or helicopters and it’s quite funny to see them eating with only their large white bodies above the water.

Preening…

  1. I don’t think I ever saw a swan fly.

  2. Did you take these shots on the Swan-nee River?
    Did you take these shots down upon the Swannee River?

    You know i couldn’t miss this opportunity….

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
