If there's one beautiful thing we can anticipate in early spring, it's swans. Specifically tundra swans, which come in every year to nest in the marshes.
These magnificent, majestic birds arrive by the thousands, filling the air with their hooting as they engage in courtship rituals and search for food.
It's just something else, to see so many at one time casually going about their business.
It's almost better to photograph them from higher up (as opposed to the water's edge) because it's easier to see the sheer number.
Yes, sometimes it's good to step back and remember how beautiful God's green earth is.
