Another, 2 different species of swan from Swan Lake in Sumter S.C A Royal White Mute Swan, and The Trumpeter . . . . . The Trumpeter Swans breed in North America, southern interior Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Generally they remain in the breeding area until the water is frozen. Alaska's population of Trumpeter Swans will migrate to the coast of British Columbia. The female lays four to eight white eggs. Their nests are made from sedge and other aquatic plants on top of muskrat lodges surrounded by water. Occasionally theses nests are on marshy ground far from the open water. The incubation period for the eggs is from 33-37 days. The Trumpeter is known for its unique call.

This is really lovely, Jon. The reflections, especially, add an elegant, kind of dreamy quality, almost as if the swans were floating in a daydream.
