This is a cygnet - a baby swan. I was out photographing birds slogging around in the slough by my house in northwestern Montana in late spring. I had just finished taking a pictures of another bird and went to take a step out of the water lilies when this little head popped up. I instinctively snapped the shutter and got the shot of this little one. Then it occurred to me what I was looking at and thought "Wow! Where's your mother?" I got out of there as fast as I could go through the water and weeds. Swans are notoriously bad tempered parents that bite viciously and smack with their giant wings to defend their nests and young.
This print is available in several sizes and formats, just select your choice as you place it in your cart. Prices can be viewed in the size drop-down box. I do my own printing on sizes up to 12 x 18. The smaller sizes are mounted on museum quality foam or matte board and shipped in a flat envelope. The larger sizes are rolled and mailed in a tube. Your over-sized print(s) will be sent to a professional lab and then mailed to you printed on premium quality, acid free, archival paper with a luster, artsy finish and carefully wrapped to ensure they reach you in perfect condition.
***Gallery Wrapped Canvas, Thin Wraps Over-Sized Prints***
My canvases are printed by a professional lab using premium archival inks. They are ready to hang as soon as you remove them from the box upon arrival. They are 1.25" deep, tightly wrapped on a solid frame, the corners are perfectly folded down tightly and neatly and the back is completely finished with a solid black backing board and staple free with a perfectly clean look. The canvas is coated with a satin finish that makes it scratch and fade resistant. Please allow two weeks for processing and shipping.
ThinWraps are printed by a professional lab on premium quality, acid free, archival paper with a luster, art finish and carefully wrapped to ensure they reach you in perfect condition. They have a ¼” foam board underneath and are expertly wrapped and edged. There is a foam block hanger on each so there is no need for additional hanging materials. Please allow two weeks for processing and shipping.
Greeting cards are 5" x 7" printed on 100% recycled paper and vegetable dyes with a matching envelope. They have a matted window opening and can be framed with a standard 5 x 7 frame. They are blank inside.
I can also print the same image with the following messages if you request it in the blue custom order section.
Just a Note
