Once upon a time about ten years ago I decided to start photographing local Trumpeter Swans. It is so fun and it gets me outside on the coldest of days. For some reason I like taking photos of wildlife in the winter even more than the summertime. I think it’s because there are fewer people out and about in the winter. I like it when it’s just me and the wildlife. There is nothing like being with the swans when 50 or more of them are playing and “trumpeting” - it’s so noisy but in a peaceful way! I have been known to stay outside in sub-zero temps for hours photographing them (usually until my camera batteries go caput). Here is one of my favorite swan photos. I have this as a 30” x 30” canvas wrap on my wall at home. It always succeeds in making me smile. :). The End.
