Off the Path

Yesterday, as I was walking around the pond, I wandered off onto an unpaved path.
Even when I couldn't spot any other people, I kept along the path and ended up beside a smaller, marshy pond.
There I spotted a beautiful swan sitting on her nest!
After watching her for a while, another swan came to visit (perhaps to relieve her?)
And another visitor, a blue heron, landed near by.
Some geese and ducks, started chattering...and the heron flew off. 
It was a lovely afternoon at the pond!

 then, she {snapped}


  1. Wow. Looks so peaceful. And mysterious in a way. Nice job :)

  2. oooh, I really like the soft feel of these photos.

  3. I think swans are so magical. What a great detour.

  4. The path less traveled, always my favorite!! You got some wonderful pictures!!

  5. Aw....beautiful. Sometimes you just have to travel a little off that path....

  6. I want to come walking at the pond with you! Lovely wildlife. And what really catches my eye are the puffs of color and texture in the clumps of tall grasses.

  7. these shots are just great. I love the processing! so calm...and serene.
