A few weeks ago Maybe and I noticed a black swan nest on our nightly walk through the neighbourhood wetlands. We have been checking up on it every day, and last Thursday I brought my camera along to get some pictures. The mom was up moving around at the time so I even snuck a peak of a couple of the eggs. Then Saturday on our walk I noticed the mom and dad swan were hanging out together in the water. I thought that was odd until I noticed four little grey fluff balls next to them. It seems that they hatched on Friday. I'm not sure who was more excited, me or the dog, but I was glad that I had once again brought my camera with me. These little things are irresistible.
