I rarely take images of wildlife as there are so many RBubblers whose field it is. I did however love this image of a swan family leaving the nest on the lake at Inch Island this evening to go for a little swim around. I love the way the male and female stay together for life, and how they care for the tiny ones. The cygnets were born earlier this week but this is the first time I managed to see them. Usually they are further out in the water. They do look rather cute. I hope you don’t mind a bit of ballet with your image.
