I was distracted by a couple of fish that I had not seen at any other visit. They were quarreling and I was trying to get a picture.
Suddenly, I heard the woman standing near me say, "She's got an egg!" I looked up and there was mama swan, egg-in-mouth. Of course, distress is spreading among we few onlookers. I, unfortunately, had set my camera lens to photo the fish, resulting in much fumbling on my part to get a picture. What you see here is the egg in the water to the left of mama, after she had dunked and apparently cracked it open.
I watched much of this with tears brimming, sad for the loss but in awe. It's not often that one gets to watch nature doing its thing; I'm glad I was there.
Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
