Saturday was a beautiful day with temperatures in the 60s and much needed sunshine. A well received respite in the middle of winter. We decided to go for a drive to Lincoln Log Cabin Historical Site so Gus could have a walk.

I took my camera in hopes of finding a bird to post today. But alas all I found were some cattails.

I was pleasantly surprised on the way home to find what appeared to be swans in a field.
Sadly, they were too far away for even my camera to take a decent closeup.

  1. Great photos, Betty! I could be wrong, but those do look like swans to me.
    We're having springlike temps lately, and the grass is green.

  2. i rather like the image of the swan - funny to see them "out of water". i always see them swimming around here!! i hope gus enjoyed his walk, it's been warm here at the jersey shore!!

  3. Fantastic countyside, Betty, I love the Swans.

  4. good to see swans :) Lovely birds. We have a few that use to winter in my area. But not many.

  5. This is awesome Betty!!
    Wonderful sighting.

    Thanks so much for adding a link to this post at I'd Rather B Birdin' over the weekend for us bird watchers. I appreciate it.

  6. Hello, I am glad you and Gus were able to get for a walk. Love the swans, great sighting. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  7. Such a lovely day. Pity there weren't more birds and a hawk or two in the sky.

  8. Such a peaceful and lovely place indeed...I love swans, too

  9. Beautiful Mute Swans. Maligned for competing with native waterfowl, but so graceful.
