    Trumpeter Swans

    During the winter these Trumpeter Swans hang out in the creek behind my home in Jackson Hole. There are numerous warm springs that feed the creek, keeping it open, and waterfowl take advantage of that. The two white swans are adults and the grey ones are cygnets, last summers young. Click on the photo to enlarge.

    Nicely captured, Chuck. I like that they are both standing on the ice and swimming. It helps to show the seperation of water and ice.
