A few miles from me, along the Charles River here in MA (this photo was taken near the border of South Natick and Serborn), a pair of swans made their nest with about a half dozen swan chicks very near the road. Cygnets (baby swans) does not seem to be a fitting word for them, since I keep seeing the word "cyborg" and these are much more cute! Now, to get this shot I used my longest lens at full zoom, so they are probably about 20 or 30 yards away from any traffic, in this kind of gross swamp lands. I love how this series came out and hopefully we'll continue to see the babies as they grow up!
