swans as big as a toddler



the bike path in the massapequa preserve was filled with surprises yesterday, this one being the sweetest. other surprises included a hawk soaring overhead as well as watching a pair of inseparable ducks and their human like antics. the preserve is an easily accessible nature sanctuary providing an oasis like antidote to the hustle and bustle of this crowded island, plus it's free!
today's post is a part of "that's my world tuesday". to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go to "that's my world tuesday". thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, fishing guy and sylvia.

Love this shot. The toddler is adorable and the Swans are gorgeous, I would love to see a swan in person. We are suppose to have them on the penisula where my beach house is, but have yet to see one.

That's a beautiful scene, Lily! It demonstrates perfectly that expression, "swanning around".
