Tundra Swans

It's that time of year when the Tundra Swans pass through for a short while.  I was out the other morning and saw three, but didn't have my telephoto lens.  I grabbed a shot in low light which is pretty lousy. Hanging where the water is most still.

So of course I've been down there every morning since and of course, no tundra swans.

Nope.  None here.

These are one of North America's largest migrating birds with a wingspan of up to 85 inches.  They breed in the western arctic, but winter down here.  That's a 3,000 mile migration with half their lives in transit.
