Evidently, today is World Photography Day. Honestly I didn't know such a day existed, but apparently it does, lol. ;) In light of commemorating this day, I feel it's only fitting to bestow one of the most recent pics I have of my favorite wildlife friends; my beloved Swan family. :) ♡♡♡♡ . . #WorldPhotographyDay #Swans #SwanFamily #SwanLovers #SwanLove #SwanLoversOfInstagram #Cob #Pen #Cygnets #Nature #NaturePhotography #Wildlife #WildEarth #WildlifePhotography #Ph #Photos #Photographic #PhotoOpportunity #Best_Moments_Nature #NaturePerfection #FiftyShadesOfNature #MassOutdoors #NewEnglandOutdoors #NaturalMassachusetts

The trumpeter swan is the heaviest living bird in North America. It was nearly hunted to extinction in the early twentieth century. A massive recovery effort took place which involved the capture and reintroduction of birds from Alaska. While their population has increased, they are still at risk in several areas and threatened by loss of habitat, ingesting lead shot, and non-native introduced species such as the mute swan. #swans #speciesatrisk #birding #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #cangeo #explorebc #bcnature #canon

Heute im Englischen Garten, size: 3 570 000 squaremeters 🗿 Not my boyfriend haha Das Ding in der Ecke meines Mundes ist kein Herpes, wohlgemerkt, das kommt, wenn du zuwenig trinkst. Habe ich in den letzten Tagen zu wenig Wasser getrunken.. und vergessen dreimal am Tag mit Teebaumöl einzuschmieren das Ding 😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹🍀 Den haben wir im Vorbeigehen kennengelernt.. Wohl ein Fan von Police und Rolling Stones! #EverybreathItake #Police #Shecomesincolors #RollingStones #Seehaus #München #EnglischerGarten #munich #englishgarden #seahousemunich #kleinhesselohersee also earlier called #schwanensee #swansea . But where are the #swans now ? At #castle #Neuschwanstein there is a little #sea also called #Schwanensee by the way
This pretty much sums up the St. Mary's Chronicles in a nut shell. Quickly becoming my favorite book series! ♡ #Swans #MoveOverHarryPotter #ChroniclesOfStMarys #DisasterMagnets #bibliophile #BreezeImpressions

Female Mute Swan using her bill and feet to rotate her eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the incubation period, the female swan (the pen) will frequently stand up and use her bill and feet to rotate her eggs, this helps to increase contact between her warm body and the surface of the eggs. Hormones cause the pen to lose some of her feathers, she also assists this by pulling out more of her feathers to expose a small patch of bare skin on her breast/underside, known as the brood patch. The exposed soft skin moulds itself around the egg and with increased blood flow to the area, she is able to very effectively warm the eggs that are in direct contact with the brood patch. The pen will change position every half hour, or so, to make sure she heats all the eggs equally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The thick shell of the egg is strong enough to take the weight of an adult swan and eggs that have been in the nest for a while will have many scratches on their surface resulting from the claws on the adult swan’s webbed feet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #muteswan #muteswans #swan #swans #whiteswan #swaneggs #incubation #rotating #swansnesting #nestingswan #nestingswans #nestingbirds #birdsnesting #birdsnest #nesting #nests #motherswan #swanlovers #swansoninstagram #instaswan #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #waterbirds #wildlife #britishwildlife #nativewildlife #rspb_love_nature #waterbirdsofinstagram
Pair of Mute Swans taking turns to incubate eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans are monogamous and usually attempt to mate for life. The male and female birds, the cob and pen, build their nest by making a large mound of reeds, rushes, grasses and sticks, at the water's edge. The nest is built by the pen, while the cob supplies the materials and protects the territory. Unlike most other waterfowl, the male will also take turns helping to incubate the eggs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #penandcob #cobandpen #muteswan #muteswans #swan #swans #cygnusolor #schwan #svan #svane #zwaan #cygne #cygnes #incubatingeggs #incubating #swannest #swansnest #swansnesting #nestingbirds #birdsnesting #birdsnest #beautifulbirds #swansoninstagram #instaswan #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #bestbirdshots #natureperfection
Mute Swan sitting on a clutch of eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans lay on average six eggs per clutch, but can lay as many as twelve. Only one egg can be produced at a time, with an egg being laid every 12-24 hours by the female. When the clutch is complete, all the eggs will be incubated (sat on) together, with the hatchlings usually emerging 35-42 days later. That allows for the eggs to all hatch at the same time. When the eggs are first laid they have a bluish-grey hue, but later turn more of an olive colour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pair of swans I photographed had six eggs in their nest. Swipe left to see the full clutch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #muteswan #muteswans #swan #swans #swanegg #swaneggs #swannest #swansnest #swansnesting #nestingswan #nestingswans #nestingbirds #birdsnesting #birdsnest #nesting #nest #nests #motherswan #swansoninstagram #instaswan #swanwatch #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #waterbirds #wildlife #britishwildlife #nativewildlife #rspb_love_nature
