A Swan in Flight

Yesterday in the warm air I saw one of the two swans of Lake Pine in flight. You should have seen those powerful wings, normally just decorative elements as they sail across the lake, now masterfully racing through the air to the far side of the lake where the other swan coddles eggs on a nest.

It took my breath away. This beautiful white bird with black markings on it's beak, wings spread out wide like a hawks or an eagles.

I would have taken a picture but my camera is broken. So you'll just have to imagine it in your minds eye. A powerful pure white bird propelled through the air above the shimmering waters of Lake Pine.
