Lunch Time

I don’t believe the little guy in the first photo was mooning me. He’s just learning how to feed off the bottom of the pond. It was very…

One Week

Here they are at a week old. So cute. I don’t think this is the same cygnet in the two photos. They are part of a sextuplet so…

Swan Family

It’s hard to believe these cygnets are only a week old. I feel like I have been following their progress for months. I suppose it has been a…

Two Years with Maya

It’s not hard to remember the exact date that I got Maya. I picked her up on May 28th, the same day as my youngest nephew’s birthday. I…

Memorial Day 2013

Today is a day to remember all the service men and women who have fought and died for our country. We give thanks to them and their families…

Pink

We’ve had a lot of rain the past week. Last night I couldn’t sleep due to the noise of the rain pouring down. However, all that rain seems…

Pink Lady Slippers

Last year I took some photos of the Lady Slippers in my brother’s yard. They have sprouted again this year and are just so cool looking.  Mom and…

Bird Nest

My brother found this amazing beautiful bird’s nest under his pontoon boat. They were removing the shrink wrap from the winter storage and getting a tune up for…

Bird Fight

On Sunday, Mom, Dad, and I went over to check on the progress of the cygnets. They were off the nest strolling with mom and dad swan. Unfortunately,…

They’re Here!

Back on April 29th, I showed this photo of a mother swan sitting on her nest. My aunt has been keeping a vigil on them, checking once or…

Plane Trail

A few weeks ago when I went to dinner in the North End with friends we spotted this in the sky. I love the blue sky of twilight…

Swanning

Mom said that she and Dad went down to check out the cygnets yesterday and only saw two of them, with the mother and father swan. I’m afraid…

Cygnet: Cuteness Overload

Thankfully, I get a tax return each year. With this year’s return I invested in a nice piece of glass (lens) for my camera. I still want to…

Orangelicious

For this year’s Mother’s Day card I used the bottom image to put on the front of the card. Mom always likes it when I make her a…

Ramblin Dan

Last Friday I meet a friend at the Earl of Sandwiches in Boston Commons. We picked up our sandwiches and then walked over to the Public Garden and…

Sunbathing Seals

While I could go down to Chatham and see more seals or even take a seal watcher tour there was something so exciting about seeing these seals out…

Flagged

The last time I was out at Saquish (before this past weekend) was back in March. I had gone out with my aunt and uncle to check the…

Just Around the Corner

On Sunday I went out to Saquish with family. It was a cool day (low 50s) but it was beautiful. As I was driving out, winding along the…

Artistic

I’m assuming these are students from either Mass Art or the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (or one of the other colleges in the area). I’d…

Artist

There are many times when I wish I was able to draw. And, not even still life, I think drawing animations would be so cool. I know a…

Squirrel Time

No more swan photos this week. Maybe this weekend they’ll be some cygnets hatching and I can get a shot. For today we have a Boston squirrel. The…

Swan Wings

This swan is not part of the mother and father swans that I’ve been posting this week. This one was down at the Jenney Grist Mill. I believe…

Friend or Foe?

After taking pictures of the swans I had to look up some information online since I know virtually nothing about swans. These are Mute Swans (apparently, they are…
