Mute Swans

Photographing birds ususally takes a back seat to golf and fishing this time of the year.  The main reason is the birds are nesting and they have young but also because I just don’t like the bugs…lolololol.  Recently I did manage to find a very co-operative family of Mute Swans.

They allowed me to get fairly close considering they had young,  lolol..the last thing you want to do is get a 26 pound bird mad at you for getting to close, yup thats right 26 pounds.

The bottom 2 images show the difference in the faces of a Mute and Trumpeter Swan (trumpeter being the all black bill below)
