A record number of swans have spent their winter on Frenchman's Bay.

  1. Good to see the water isn't frozen. Has there been ice there?

  2. Lucky for them the surface is not frozen. Nice that there are only a few color's in sight. It makes the picture quite balanced. Like it.

  3. I;m not surprised it's a record number! I have been to Frenchman;s Bay a few time this winter and there really are a lot of both mute swans and trumpeter swans,

  4. Beautiful capture and lucky visitors to see these majestic birds.

    I can't find the words to describe the background, but it adds elements of drama and emotion.

    I've canoed from Bluffers park to Frenchman's Bay... I remember it being a challenge when I still lived in the area.

  5. I wonder what the reason is? There seem to have been a lot of them along our lakeshore too.

    1. As long as they can find food they will stay.

  6. Love the subtle, soft tones in this photo. Those swans don't care what the water temperature is so long as it is liquid.

    1. I don't even like a cold shower. Theses guys live in 24 seven.

  7. Very cool. What a terrific find, Andy. Regarding your comment on SDP: You're absolutely right! One of the reasons why I enjoy having a personal blog is because I can do whatever I want with it. It's such a liberating feeling.

  8. I love the muted winter tones of this shot; it's very nice. And I don't care how much down I might have on my body, I don't think I could ever float around like those swans!

  9. There were an awful lot in Lasalle Park too!
    And then one day, the urge to go back to Sudbury or wherever strikes, and they all leave at once, usually overnight.

  10. I always think swans are a very elegant bird. I like the way the background is emphasized in this photo rather than the birds.
