Juvenile Trumpeter Swan
Friends, Early in the morning we went to see the sunrise in Crex Meadows and watch the Sandhill Cranes lift off their roost site and fly off to the fields. But this Trumpeter Swan family stole the show. This cygnet has juvenile gray feathers with a striking pink bill and sorry about the adult in the background, serves as a nice contrast to show off the adult vs young coloring. Next Spring they will all be white with black bills. til Tomorrow MJ

yo MJ……your new lens seem to me to be producing superior images. I envy your fortitude of early rising. I generally spend that time looking at other that do the early rise. Keep them coming they grace my day…….en theos,,,jim
jim, we don’t always go out early, but we have a black lab who loves his early morning walks
