Swans and a Sunny Day on May 7th, 2022.

Digital, 2022.

These are some of my favourite photos of my favourite trumpeter swan, Pet. She kept preening and spreading her wings and the lighting conditions were perfect. The sun shone beautifully through her wings and transformed her into some type of ethereal being.

Unfortunately, these are also the last photos I have of her as I’ve been told that she’s no longer with us. I’m not sure what happened to her but I’m devastated. Pet was such a kind soul and never hesitated to waddle up to us and say hi. Sometimes we would sit side by side to enjoy the sounds and sights of the lake. I was looking forward to hopefully seeing her again this winter but it wasn’t meant to be. I’ll miss you, Pet.

The last photo is of the male mute swan making his landing. I heard some loud clapping over the lake and wondered what was going on. A split second later, I realized what I was hearing and had my camera at the ready.
