I've got a lot of catching up to do, but I spent some time over the last day or so finally getting around to rounding up photos and getting them ready to post. I think I'll try just doing a few a day, though... or it could get overwhelming. Once again, a number of these will look familiar to people who follow me here on LJ already.

We moved into our house last summer... and while it's not all that far from our old one, the difference in wildlife is amazing! And imagine our surprise when the fields just up the road suddenly filled with Trumpeter Swans!! Apparently, this is one of the places they fly to in the winter. I snapped this photo back in early January and the fields were filled with hundreds of them!

ETA: The grey ones you can see there are, from what I understand, the previous year's babies... it was interesting to watch over the past few months as the grey faded more and more until they started to blend in with all the others.
