Under mom and dad’s watchful eye

Swans and young

One of my favourite subjects. I love swans. I adore everything about them. Here mom and dad are keeping a very close watch on their youngster. And heaven help anyone or anything that gets too close.

    Lovely The paradise ducks in our parks are the same; ferociously protective.

      Nature is horribly tough. I think it does touch something inside us and give us a connection to see creatures so different to us with the same basic instincts to protect their young.

        Yes, so true. I have watched the paradise ducks with their young and thought, ‘oh so that’s how to be a good parent; wish I had seen this earlier!”
