Checking on the Cygnets


What a wonderful way to be transported by Mother Swan. They don't look like ugly ducklings to me. via

Tim...What a sight that would be to see in person. She looks like a very good mother. Have a great weekend too in your new home.

No, definitely NOT ugly! How beautiful are their soft mink coloured downs?

And what fantastic (and fearsome) mothers swans are. I've seen them in action protecting their cygnets and I wouldn't want to be the recipient of their beaks or beating wings!
Beautiful, graceful creatures deserved of admiration and respect from afar I think :)

Tammy....I have witnessed their fierceness more than once. Mother Swans are definitely to be admired from afar.
