Camera Critters # 20
Swans are such beautiful birds. We have many on the lakes in Cape May Point, NJ. One day while visiting Lily Lake I saw at least two dozen on the water.
I took a few pictures, though I could never capture all of them at once.
On another day I saw five. This is unusual, since they are usually in pairs. Perhaps one had lost a mate. First I saw them swimming together. Later I spotted them at rest.
And I just have to add this one even though I've posted it before - on Mothers' Day I think.
Misty hosts Camera Critters each week allowing us to share our photos with one another. Please take time to stop by and enjoy some of the wonderful images we have to show you.

Hi! Swans are beautiful creatures. Everytime I go, I enjoy seeing them on the lakes. The babies are adorable. Lisa
These shots are all so wonderful, I wish I could see them free like this.
Ils sont TRES jolis les cygnes...
I love swans too! great photos!
Swans really beautiful and graceful birds. You have some great shots here. I LOVE the babies!
My critter is here
Ah … what a wonderful series of ‘swan’ photos … I enjoyed them all very much. I’ve shared my CC at Small Reflections today.
Hugs and blessings,
These are really good. I especially like the third one and the one with babies!
These are beautiful shots of swans. I love that last picture resting. Thanks for the comment.
What a beautiful series of photos. I really love the mama swan and her babies!
There really are a lot of them! They're so pretty.
Those are beautiful! I love the babies!
Awww that last photo is soooo sweet :) Great shots!
Love these pictures. The swans look so graceful and the pictures are so serene looking. I like just staring at the pictures!
These are beautiful birds. I find it hard to realize that in some ares this beautiful creatures are plentiful. They are not native in my region so I am amazed each time someone posts a grouping of them. Lucky you, I might even trade my Monarch Cocoon for a Swan sighting :-)
Great shots .. that is odd about the uneven # .. swans mate for life so you could be right that one lost its mate ..
Very beautiful pictures of the swans! They are such graceful creatures.
Love the swans..There aren't any around here that I know of...
The swans are just gorgeous! They are so graceful and serene! They give me such a peaceful feeling just looking at them. You have so many of them, I can't get over it!
Also, isn't it funny about men and their showing affection to animals. I loved your comment about your son-in-law and men in general and how they hate to let anyone see them showing love or affection or any kind of emotions for animals(in our case cats)! Men are a funny breed in themselves!!! (lol)...
Have a great rest of the weekend!! Beautiful photos and post as usual!!!!
Me again, :) sorry, referred to your son as your son-in-law...my mistake....sorry!!
Oh, these are so pretty!
I could watch swans all day long! They are so serene and graceful. In Maui, I saw black swans in a lagoon. They are wonderful, too.
What a nice place to go for a walk or hang out! For me, two of the two most calming things on the planet are looking at swans on the water and images of Buddha.
Look at the baies I have wonderful memories of this area sandy
Such elegant and graceful birds and you have taken such amazing photographs. It's not something I see too often here in the mountains. Sometimes I will see the odd one float down from the sky and land on the lakes but I have to be quick as they don't stay long...
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog... I can't tell you how much I really appreciated. It really made my day.
Aww ... I especially love that mommy photo at the end. What is it about white birds that makes them so appealing? Egrets or anything else large and white just seems particularly beautiful.
Anyway, great photos!
Swans were the first birds I got close to. Wonderfu aren't they. Great pics.
Wow! These are beautiful!
I've never seen so many Swans together, nice pictures.
wow! beautiful swans, I love the views very peaceful and clean..
They are so peaceful. I like the second picture best. Would make a great screensaver. Thanks for visiting me.
I love swans! They are so beautiful, graceful, and majestic!
just love your pictures :)
they look so graceful, even at rest
love Mama swan and the swanettes :)
I've been crazy for swans ever since I was a little kid...you posted some really great shots.
We have no Swans in this country but they have been mentioned in early literature.
That mother looks very busy.
I love swans because they bring back many happy childhood memories for me.
Every summer when I was young I visited my grandmother for a month.
The park that was near her house had many swans and every day we would walk over together and feed them.
Please come and visit my blog on Monday because I have something special for you.
I also posted a linky to your blog on mine.
Look at the babies.. how sweet. Great pics
Sweet and cute :)
