Right on cue

DSC_1414

         A whole year has passed since I first met the “Lady on the lake” with her five beautiful babies (and of course her Hubby) on a patch of grass beside the lake.

          I missed the nesting and the tiny cignets, when I first found them, the family were already settled near the carpark and I watched as the babies grew into fully grown swans themselves.

          This year after leaving an “Empty nest” beside the lake, the new family moved on, possibly deeper into the reeds of the nature reserve and I lost track.  I kept a watchful eye out at last years settling place and finally spotted the odd feather laying on the grass.  My regular checking paid off and the family posed quite nicely for a group photo for me. 

          These were last years “Ugly Ducklings“, the pictures were taken shortly after we’d moved to Weymouth…

  1. Doesn’t time fly indeed when we’re having fun? But how wonderful it is that you have these lovely memories of a time when you paused and savored the moment. I do hope your swans will come back next year and introduce you to yet another new family.

    • Thanks Heide, I pause often. My memory needs a photo prompt to remember the moment though. I crave happy thoughts so if something makes me smile I take a quick snap so that I can savour the moment again and again. 😀 😀 😀
