Artist's Description

Photo taken in May 2010 at the Buttonwood pond, New Bedford, Massachusetts

This was a swan without a mate…either he was still looking for one or had lost its mate…but I will always beleive he was the swan left behind by its parents the year before…They flew off without him and the geese took him under their wings…sort of speaking & took care of him until they all flew south in November…May 2010, he stayed for a while and always came to see me…as if in recognition for the fall before when I spent so much time watching & photographing him…he left shortly after to find a mate…So the story goes, he found her and they came back at the New Year, January 2011…some of you might say, how does she think she knows all that??? Well, my friends, all of you, I study all the birds’ behavior at the pond and I pretty much know what goes on there…That’s my statement and I stick to it…
