This Morning Outside

Fourteen trumpeter swans graced a Fairfield, Iowa, pond recently. One spread its wings and displayed a mighty chest.

And a little closer view... The white trumpeter is an adult. The grey one is typical for the young of the year in mid December. It will also be pure white by next spring. I love the way the breeze is tickling some feathers on the young bird's back.
