    These must be juvenilles, or they\’ve been swimming in muddy water.  😉  Wonderful feather detail and I love the synchronized drips off the bills.   They look like you\’ve caught their attention.  Is it you or the click of the camera?  I find the Canada Geese are drawn to the click click click.
    Hug hugs from a city gal up much too late! lol

    The coloration on the head and neck is an indicator of the minerals in the water they feed in (iron is common), these are adults.
    I had sat there for a long time and I verbalized to them (honked my most swany honk LOL) before they decided to come in this close.
    I never know what it is, but I enjoy encounters like these way much!

    Looks like a perfectly matched pair and they certainly seem attracted by your honking LOL xx

    I also like "talking" to the animals (mostly ducks and swans over here) … it makes me feel as if I were part of that "natural" world and not so much the "civilized ??!! human" world … LOL !!!
     
    Juveniles have a greyish color in Belgium (and they are not the same species either : we have mute swans, Cygnus olor – are yours Bewick swans ??) and as said previously they "sit" higher on the water than your Alaskan friends.
     
    Honk, honk from Belgium !!

    I just love looking at your photos and reading your poems.
    The swans are beautiful. I thought they were cygnets at first. Do you ever see white swans where you are?
    Hope you don\’t mind me dropping by from time to time.

  11. Kimmy says:

    Oh they are just gorgeous together! Those little drips of water dangling off their noses! Awesome shot!

  12. Patsy says:

    So glad you are having good weather, the geese? look so good and like always your photography is excellent.  I tried to take a picture of my large coy fish in my pond to share with you, but hey I need your camera, my little digital won\’t do him justice. LOL Take care and have a wonderful week. Pat

    I love the photos.  So peaceful.

  14. Cindy says:

    I seem to always have requests…how about getting them in that romantic heart looking position?  You know the one, face to face?  No, just being a wise a**.  Great pictures, I like the drips too. 

  15. J W says:

    Can I reflect?  Yes Steve.  And it would take a large book to pen the tranquil images your contributions bring.  Once again, I thank you sir.

    Barb!
    I want to ammend my comment about these swans.
    I have looked through my books and last fall\’s photos, and I now think these are young adults or sub adults, maybe 2 1/2 year olds.
    The distinct black bill is that of an adult, but the grey plumage seems more than the typical coloration from feeding on plants that are in iron rich waters. What a challenge this is LOL

  18. Cindy says:

    That\’s my kind of fun right there … floating along peacefully … water\’s probably a little colder than I prefer.
