Momma Swan & her 'swanling' The male swan (the cob) helps the female (pen) look after their babies, (cygnets, derived from the Latin word for swan, "cygnus") until they are a year old. The young don't spend more than one day in the nest once they hatch.
Cisne- Swans in Love. When I was little, to me, swans were the most beautiful creatures on earth. I was always heartened by the 'Ugly Duckling' story and hoped I'd turn into a swan someday. Never happened!
A sight to behold.
This is a great picture! I haven't seen a photo of a red headed woodpecker in ages, let alone one feeding its baby peepers.
Cute mom swan with her babies. Did you know baby swans were a pink hue like that?
