Boucle and I were at the lake yesterday morning at sunrise.  It was cool yet gorgeous.  So calm and peaceful.  For a long time, we were the only ones about, along with the morning birds.  We walked and sat on the shore and Boucle and I played fetch as the birds watched us play……

And swans flew by, with their loud flapping sounds…….

Sunday morning at the lake………

Beautiful Lake Ontario……..

…swan fly by………early morning paddlers………

Every now and then on Sunday morning there were many pairs of swans flying across the lake,  and then landing.

Unusual to see so many pairs on the same morning.

Imagine how thrilled these early morning paddlers must have been to have the swans fly overhead.

Beautiful Lake Ontario

…swans taking off……early this morning…….Lake Ontario…..

Boucle and I were walking along the beach and then suddenly, there was this noise…..

……like the low slow flap flap flap of a helicopter taking off………
….we looked far away into the distance……
…and in the middle of the lake……
…swans were taking off……
…their flapping in unison was so powerful……and loud…….

A very cropped shot as my max focal was 70 mm.

…morning swans………..

I always try to head out as early as I can to the Lake because that is when you see the ducks, swans and geese.  Yesterday morning, Boucle and I saw some swans, and were lucky that they were ruffling their beautiful feathers, very swan like as they passed.  The lone duck must have gotten lost from his flock and was hitching a ride with the swan family.
