They're Back! Trumpeter Swans on the Huron River
Twice a year, in early winter, and again in early spring, I see significant numbers of trumpeter swans on this stretch of the river. I enticed several pairs to come closer by feeding shelled corn. Three pairs came to feed, while others remained far out in the river, or near the far shore.

Title: They're Back! Trumpeter Swans on the Huron River
Note added: The right hand picture is not a crop. It's the full frame as it came from the camera. With the swans in constant motion, coming closer and moving farther away, I couldn't always re-zoom and re-focus both for my shots. The zoom on the camera I was using (a point and shoot) is not exactly fine touch, so in camera composition on the fly with a moving subject is an adventure.
