This is a time of Transition for these Cygnets.
Taking a late afternoon break back at their nesting home
The Cygnets are about 2mos. old now.
This is a time of Transition for these Swan lings.
They are not as cute as their bodies are growing quickly. But they are Beautiful in their own way.
This is a time of learning many new things from their parents to help them survive and grow into Graceful Swans just like their parents.
I have noticed that these swans are a very close family.It truly is remarkable that out of 9 cygnets, 8 have survived, where as a couple years ago, only 4 out of 8 had survived. I am thrilled to see so many. Because of their size now, I think they will all survive. The Cygnets are most vulnerable when they are small.
They are growing their feathers and in the Fall they will learn to fly. I do hope I get to witness that and get a few shots of them in flight. Depends on whether they stay close by or go out into the deep or move to the other side of the Bay. We will just have to wait and see.
It has been my pleasure to witness them and share them with you. Thank you for your visits and comments.
