We have a nearby lake that is home to 4 (store-bought) whooper swans which are the national bird of Finland, and the heaviest flying bird. This is one I caught backlit by yesterday’s morning sun. They were brought in to scare away the Canada geese which is crashing failure. They are still nice to have around, handsome birds that they are.
