Happy Easter from Eagle River Valley

Once again, I began the day with solitude and swans and cannot, for the life of me, think of a more positive way to spend a morning. For three hours I watched this pair feeding and preening themselves; waiting for the light, the scene, the perfect opportunity to present itself to capture the image I had in my mind’s eye. With the amount of time I’ve spent observing and photographing these two recently, I am beginning to recognize behavioral patterns and anticipate situations, thus placing myself in the right position for moments like these.
