Swans are always seems at poetry like pure innocent creatures . Even sometimes reality can be different. But your picture here is more lyrical and moving.

I love the way wild animals figure out ways to summon humans into a routine that may include food. I love the way you paint this brief scene so vividly, I can almost hear it (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
