Fly Away

My dream picture of any bird is to catch it spreading its wings - or flying.  
 Sometimes Trumpeter Swans flap their wings as a warning to those nearby

 Sometimes to rearrange their feathers

 And often just before taking off
 Away they go



First time I've ever seen it done in unison - I was, and still am, amazed.

It looks like a synchronized dance. Wish I could pull off something that well coordinated because our school id having a program and each class is doing a song or something with movements AND ... the teachers have a short stint. I can only hope to stand in the back and try to copy what those in front are doing. Joking aside, they look so lovely.

Magical photos JoAnn. I love the one of the two swans taking off with the glorious landscape as the backdrop. Also the one of them flapping their wings in unison is sublime!
