Where did they go?

The Swan parents pulled a fast one this morning!  (Through my window world...)They went up on the opposite bank of the little lake and went out of sight.  The 4 juveniles were feeding a little further down and when they turned around and cruised back, their parents were no where to be seen.  So they kept circling around and tried to see where the parents were.  The rise in the landscape was just high enough that they could not see.  This went on for about 45 min. until they finally climbed the bank and went in the same direction.  Swan behavior is so fascinating!  The parents must think it is time to push the juveniles out on their own-ha!

Note the two Mallard ducks to the right.  They are our resident Mallards and hang around with the Swans all the time. 

The squirrels have been playing on the wooden crane and have him all askew.

They also took flight a few times going from one end of the lake to the other but kept coming back until their final departure.

Nature is so wonderful!

It's wonderful to watch nature, Only the other day I was looking at baby squirrels coming down a tree one by one not too sure if the branches were safe, Then mother squirrel appeared and led them on a different route,

Have a good day,

So love your shares, Kerrie. Your back yard is so full of beauty.

Bill is just a saint! God bless him in his journey of this nasty disease. It brings tears every time I see him, we so love you both.

I don't care, I still ask God 'why' with many tears.

Love you both, sweetie.
