Mute Swan Fly-In

I went to the local Nature Preserve this morning hoping to see an Osprey and maybe a few different ducks. Saw an Osprey across the lake but it flew off into the distance. A Great Egret flew in and landed on a close pile of sticks in the water and I was concentrating on the Egret when suddenly 6 Mute Swans flew in & did a close Fly By then landed on the far side of the lake. Mute Swans are one of my favorites. Their wingbeats sound cool as they fly by, especially when there are six of them. Plus they are a Large subject to photograph!  I could not get all six in the frame, but it was still fun to see them.
