Mute Swan, Summer 2010
I had seen swans before, but only in Stratford. In the summer of 2010, I noticed these massive beauties in the Detroit River, but wasn't able to stop and enjoy them. Driving my son to his friends house, I drove past a pond in the Little River Wetlands/Ganatchio Trail area and stopped to see them. As soon as I stepped new the edge of the pond, two of these beauties swam right up to me, allowing me to get some great pictures! This one reminded me of the "Tunnel of Love" rides where you ride in the giant swans (that I've only seen in movies). When they realized I didn't have food to give them, they eventually swam away.
