Nature clicks # 58 - After 83 days

83 days old
Nikon D200, Sigma 50-500 mm f/4.0-6.3

A brief update on the Trumpeter Swans. I stopped at the Mill Creek Ponds on my way to the Green Island Wetlands (see my post from yesterday). The young swan has grown quite a bit in its 83 days of life. All three seemed to be healthy. It is so nice to see that the parents successfully raise their young one this year. If you click on the "Trumpeter Swan" tag below, you can see my older posts about this swan couple and their cygnet.

The sky was covered with gray clouds. That made the light relatively soft but the colors look a little washed out. I couldn't get any closer than this. The Sigma 50-500 was fully extended. The image is not cropped.
