He is keeping an eye on me… this boy was quite nasty the day I took this shot … he came up on land from the middle of the pond and really hissed at me .. I definately backed up and away … I think he is getting tired of waiting for his mates eggs to hatch which will never hatch thanks to the city oiling them..she sits on them every year from about May – June to September – October waiting for them .. very sad !

    An exquisite nature shot, Elaine. I love how the light is reflected off the tiny water droplets.

    Nice one of this handsome Swan, Elaine, and I agree with you… very sad and a pity the TRCA won’t listen to the concerns of residents about the egg oiling…

    No wonder he is unhappy … I couldn’t believe what you had written about oiling
    the eggs, but have found (on the net) it is a fairly common practice … how very sad :(
