Juvenile swans

Despite my grand plans to closely follow the hatching and growth of the baby swans, our summer schedule has had us out and about or in the pool, keeping the swan family out of sight more than I'd expected.

In late May, two of the eggs hatched.  They've been doing well, growing like little gray weeds.  The family still spends its time together - the two adult swans and the two cygnets are rarely seen far from each other.  The Bug and I managed to sneak down to the boardwalk for an evening feeding on Friday.  Here are a couple of pictures:
