On my recent trip to Turner Falls we saw several Mute Swans. As I have not seen this species of bird in several years I was truly captivated by its beauty. I have never seen one fly before and so was quite amazed to see several come in for a landing. Below is a series of shots of this large bird as it landed in the Turner Falls Power Canal.
I have never actually seen a swan go into this pose before. This was a first for me. Some reports are that this is an aggressive pose but this bird did not seem mean to me and none of the other swans seemed to be afraid of it or get out of its way.
My World Tuesday to find out!
