Cygnet - Baby Swan- Original Photography- Photo Print and Greeting Cards


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.

Greeting cards are 5" x 7" printed on Fine quality photo paper and placed inside a 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. For larger sized prints, please contact me for sizes and pricing.
