Haven

Every spring for the past two years there has been a pair of swans on the large pond that is near where I work and this year is no exception, the swans are back and they must be happy there as they have a clutch of seven chicks!

So, I had to dig out the camera and take a few photos. Naturally I didn't want to get too close as I know full well that a protective swan can be quite fierce! I did manage to take a few photos before Mummy (or possibly even Daddy) swan waddled out of water and cast me a few threatening looks!

Such sweet little Ugly Ducklings! (I have no idea what baby swans are called!)

It seems as though it would be the prefect illustration for the tribute to your mum. :)

Beautiful pictures! I love how the baby swans were included in the pic. :D
