What a surprise and joy! I went back again to see how the Trumpeter Swan is doing, which I was writing about in my previous posts. I found a new situation. There were three swans on the lake today. Two were obviously in love with each other and didn't separate the whole afternoon. From time to time their resonated honking notes sounded very loud across the water. Suddenly they were flying to a remote part of the lake and started chasing another swan back into a bay. Afterwards they came back where I had my camera in position, and they continued feeding.
I hiked to the other side of the lake, where the light was anyway better for photography. The single swan was swimming in a bay, out of sight from the couple. He didn't feed during the whole time, but to my delight did spread his wings. More to come!
