The Baby Swans

We went to the duck pond to see if the baby swans (Cygnets) had hatched. We were a little late this year, as the babies were about half grown!




When swans are first born, they do not have long necks. Their necks get longer very slowly as they grow. This baby was doing some exercise! He was the only one not following mom everywhere. He wanted to do his own thing.

These fish were swimming below, and eating up all the food!

The little baby swan is just like little kids, wanting to explore and do their own things.

even at half grown they are adorable. The one off on his own made me laugh with that leg sticking up out of the water
