Description

Feather maintenance is key to the survival of birds. This trumpeter swan was unusually tolerant of my presence allowing me to observe and photograph his entire preening process. He was fastidious in his feather maintenance and unhurried despite the very icy water and sub zero temperatures. He finished his preening protocol with a series of magnificent wing flaps revealing the richness of his beautiful feathers. Yellowstone National Park.
