I didn’t notice this when I shot it but this one Swan looks like it has a neck injury? I looked at the other shots and all the other Swans have straight necks except this one. It looks like some neck vertebrae were damaged from a incident,but It seems ok enough to survive.

Nature is so resilient!


This is Ernie. He and Ethel live on Strawberry island. This months moon is called a “Cold” moon. (Oak moon sometimes) I’m glad I was able to get these shots, as they would turn out to be my only moon shots! Nothing but cloud today onward. So we will not be able to see the Cold full moon on Wednesday?

Ernie looks so stoic. Ethel was right above him. They are beginning to pair up as mating season is about to happen.
