While driving around the many lakes in the area, out of the corner of our eyes something fairly large and white. Rick is great at spotting and getting the car off the road so I can get out to take photographs. We walked along the road to get to a little clearing and our prize was nesting Trumpeter Swans. We could not get too close, so they were not upset at our standing there watching them.
It was a slow start for spring but the flowers were blooming, corn just starting to grow, and trees were rich with green. I did get some sketching in, just rough ideas and notes. Next need a few photos of trees around the Virginia Tech campus and I can move forward with the tree projects I have in mind.
