Swan Lake

Mr. Blue Jay displays his plumage. Being very gallant, he feeds his lady-love the choicest morsels from the bird feeder. He is saying:

See how beautiful I am?
See what a good provider I am?
Let's make babies!

It's official. It's spring. My eyes are itchy, my nose is running and I am sneezing my head off.  The air is heavy with pollen.  In the still of last evening, I went out to capture some photos of the cherry blossoms in the back yard.  I found a wonderful surprise instead--a swan, dallying in the shallows at the foot of our bank.  What a treat.

Tranquility.  Swan Lake at home.
