Introducing “Mute Swans… A New Generation”





But today Mr. Cobb seems to be trying to be the Center of Attention, as he splish splashes away.





As he seems to be having some fun with his family as he takes his bath, splashing His Pen, and nine baby cygnets. Maybe he thought they needed a shower to cool themselves down on a hot day in May.

Yes I am behind once again and it is now June, and I have some catching up to do, if I can.





I think he spotted me and he put on quite the show.

Mr. Cobb seemed to be in a very good mood and quite happy, and proud to be a new daddy.

I was surprised to see nine baby cygnets. That is a big family as they usually average seven to eight cygnets.

He was happy to put on a show for me as I started shooting with my Canon. I took quite a few pictures that day, and this is just a few. I did focus mostly on him because he made it very difficult not too, with all his antics.




He just went back and forth in front of me, and his family, and seemed to enjoy every moment, as did I.




Maybe he felt the need to distract me from his family. I don’t really know. I never seen anything like it.

I couldn’t help but laugh, and smile at such a sight.




Did you ever see such a sight?

Just look at him and the expression on his face. :)





He doesn’t look to graceful here but he sure was having a good time, and so was I.




For a moment it was as if he were posing for me.

I loved how the water just rolled off of him like beads of pearls.




It almost looks like Pen was giving him a look,

as if to say, “Just what are you doing”?

And the Cygnets just kept preening themselves.




Finally he heads for shore.




I couldn’t believe this pose! What a character!

This one really made me laugh, and it is a wonder that I didn’t have camera shake . I have never seen anything like this.




It was like he was announcing to the world that he was the luckiest dad and mate in the world.

Mr. Cobb was the “Life Of The Bay” on this fine day.

I counted it an Honor to witness such a sight.




Here is a picture of the family that was taken a short time later. I did take more photos and will share them on another day.

Hope you enjoyed this introduction to this beautiful swan family.

Spring Blossoms

Apple Blossoms Basking In The Sunlight

On A Beautiful Spring Day



As I was driving home one day, I noticed a Beautiful Apple Tree in full bloom. Later in the day I went for a walk with my camera, and took a few photos of the tree.

Each branch seemed to wave gently in the breeze, and whispering  softly pick me, pick me!!! It was hard to choose and some of the beautiful blossoms had to be content just being in the background. They to had a part to play, and the picture just wouldn’t be right without them doing their part.

I am sure there is a lesson we could all learn from this, but I will leave it to you, to decide, and if nothing else I hope you enjoy this picture of the pretty blossoms in bloom.

I hope you are all enjoying Spring. It won’t be long until Summer arrives. I have been out on my bike a few times and riding along the water front trail. I discovered something pretty special a couple of weeks ago, and managed to get a few pictures. I hope to share them with you in the near future. Seems I am always running behind, but still moving forward. Ha!

Many of you remain in my thoughts and prayers. God be with you and remember He Loves You.
