Guardian Swans

Species: Mute swan | Location: Redbud Island, Austin, TX, United States

Though not native, swans have long nested along the edge of Redbud Island at the upper end of Ladybird Lake, on the Colorado River in Austin. The male was patrolling the waterfront while his mate sat on the nest.

About The Photographer

My interest in photography began with family and travel subjects. Some years ago, I expanded into wildlife, nature, and landscape themes. I particularly enjoy photographing animals from very small to large.
