Swans

Mute Swans form long-lasting pair bonds. Their reputation for monogamy along with their elegant white plumage has helped establish them as a symbol of love in many cultures. This pair made their nest on the edge of a large ditch. She never left her nest for almost two months, as the male would swim up and down the ditch. He would also just sit in a large field from the nest. Once the cygnets hatched he was by her side all the time. As you can see in the photos he kept a very watchful eye on me as I was taking the pictures.
