Fly Away 2

The Trumpeter Swans have been very cooperative this year - giving me plenty of opportunities to catch them stretching their wings.


 Take off!!!!


 Landing - and they never land on top of each other.
 Settling in.



 Away we go!

What a wonderful sight, I've only ever seen one or two pairs of swans together never such a large gathering such as this. Your photographs are fab, love the great shapes of the mosaics you created.
Happy Mosaic Monday!

Like Maggie said, I've never see a whole flock of them. Usually just a few casually floating on the water. Great photos!

The Trumpeter Swans are beautiful in flight, so graceful looking. They are a bit ungainly on land, but when they stretch their wings and begin their take off, it's as if they become more lovely. Wonderful photos, JoAnn, so glad they've cooperated for their photo sittings this year.

It's just amazing to have so many of these beautiful creatures .... quite a skill that they know just where to land isn't it?

Nature in all her glory indeed.
