Reach Out: “I’ll be there with a love that will shelter you.”

When we were kayaking this afternoon, we drew close to this mother swan and her four cygnets. She was fiercely protective, keeping herself between us and her babies. While she was hissing at me, she was also calling out–and then there was a whoosh, and her mate landed right in front of me, wings stretched out to make himself seem bigger. We backed off pretty quickly.

    They can be very intimidating, glad you were able to get the shot before you were shown the “door”.
