This handsome male mute swan (called a cob) preceded his mate (called a pen) on my visit to Lake Ames in Rockaway, NJ. He was very tame (as was she), but some male mute swans have been known to attack people, foxes, or even boats if they feel that their territory or family have been put in danger. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 to capture this beauty.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
