In addition to the cygnets being pretty cute as they learned to feed, watching the constant motion of the parents and the little ones was rather comical.
Bottoms up is the only way for the swans to get the grass in the deeper water, which also shows off their enormous feet.
The cygnets certainly swam a lot further during feeding than the parents, around and around.
Most of the time one adult had a head up and they all stayed pretty close together.

These birds are GORGEOUS!
Their color combo is quite something!
Lovely shots of special moments!
Thanks, Pete! They were fun to watch, too, like perpetual motion machines.
