Hitching a ride

Swans and cygnets taken last week.

There are still 7 cygnets, they seem to be growing quite quickly.

Not sure what happened with the blue in this picture, different angle and a blue sky seem to have made the water look quite inviting.

what a lovely family Ellie!
Que bonito !! No te preocupes, la escena es muy tierna!
That pretty! You do not worry, the scene is very tender! smile
I'm happy to see this family again. This has a serene and gentle light and mood.
They certainly have grown and they're still hitching rieds with Mama. You're so lucky to have had this opportunity.

A salute from waterfowl lover to another grin
What a sweet family. And it's interesting the way the sky is reflected in the water, as you mention.

Great to meet up with the family again Ellie. My, but they grow quickly! And those cheeky ones who still catch a ride suggest they've already developed different personalities. Lovely.
Very lovely, Ellie. This is wonderful smile Those little ones are so very cute too!
Awesome Shot Ellie - the blue is just fabulous. And of course its a moment perfectly captured, hope you have a nice weekend smile
You have described how they climb on the swan's back, but this is the first time I see it. It is funny and touching. Very nice!

Because of your persistence in getting these wonderful shots, Ellie, my guess is that we are all now privy to something most of us have never seen before.

Over and over again we are seeing Mother Nature in her glory here on SC. I, for one, am totally enthralled. Thank you for YOUR part in this.
Cute family. I'm delighted ! You know how I love nature and animal ! Thanks Ellie and have a great week-end.
