Jolie photo de ce beau cygne dans son habitat naturel.
Martin from Stone: They are lovely elegant birds
Ingenious critters they are, Martin!

The start of the process I guess Martin
Martin from Stone: Spring is just around the corner, so getting ready for the patter of tiny webbed feet.

Looks like there is plenty if building material. I hope that it all leads to a happy family later on.
Martin from Stone: It is in an ideal place on a much walked stretch of the lake
I hope they raise a family successfully
Martin from Stone: I am optimistic
They will raise it up every year.
Martin from Stone: Yes such a lot of work to get it to the intended design
Isn't it amazing how they do all this with just their beaks.
Martin from Stone: They are clever creatures. By the way I am trying to get to grips with Lightroom, this image is much better than the original, I just struggle with understanding many of the settings and tools at the moment.

Hah, and I also feature nest building today. I always admire the hard work they put in and with so little tools. Great shot.
Martin from Stone: They are industrious with their building, some birds make little effort beyond a few twigs
and there is only one? i think he/she is conceptualizing it at the moment.
