So, knowing one secret spot where we once spotted swans a month ago, we went out looking for them again in the same area, hoping I could catch some pictures. Last time, it was raining when we got photos of the swans, so I was hoping for a clearer day to shoot pictures of them. My husband said it was a miracle to have found them the first time, because in all the years he has hunted in the woods, he has never seen swans in the wild other than the time this summer that we happened across them.
But you know ME. I just had to go and look for them again. Because maybe. Just maybe.
Wouldn't you know.....as soon as we got near where we saw them the time that I got to take some photos of them in June, it started to POUR. And then the background got all misty and foggy. So much for clear pictures of anything, I thought!
But we forged ahead anyway.
Right before we got to the pond where the swans were last time, we rounded a corner and out in a field were THESE!!!!!:
But they hardly noticed me. They seemed intensely focused on looking for something. They began calling out high pitched sounds and looking about.
I thought maybe they had babies in the field, but we waited a long time and never saw any babies.
Here they are looking and looking about, as if they were searching for something:
Don't they make an adorable family?:
