Cisne- Swans in Love. When I was little, to me, swans were the most beautiful creatures on earth. I was always heartened by the 'Ugly Duckling' story and hoped I'd turn into a swan someday. Never happened!

Swan gives us the ability to handle change and transformation with grace and dignity.

Swans are extremely graceful and great to watch. Don’t get too close though, they are territorial birds

The swans are the largest members of the waterfowl family Anatidae, and are among the largest flying birds. The largest species, including the mute swan, trumpeter swan, and whooper swan, can reach length of over 60 inches & weigh over 33 pounds. Their wingspans can be almost 10 ft. Compared to the closely related geese, they are much larger in size: feet and necks. They also have a patch of unfeathered skin between the eyes and bill in adults. Young are called Cygnet

Swans nest at our country park lake, beautiful. Last year there were 8 eggs, 7 hatched & 5 survived.
