Nesting Swan

Patience: the word that came to mind when I first noticed this swan sitting so calmly on her nest. She was undisturbed by my presence in the kayak, eight feet away. The reed nest, on a little island in the middle of the Still River had a full 360˚ view, perfect for dozing in the sun while keeping a watchful eye open. Her mate was also unconcerned about me being there, in no rush to shoo me away, all of us enjoying a grand spring morning.
