Description

Years ago, the trumpeter swan was almost nearly extinct. Thanks to habitat protection and intensive conservation, their numbers have rebounded, especially in Minnesota. I am touched by the fact that swans mate for life and families stay together until the cygnets are fully grown (usually about one year). This photo shows the closeness of a swan family - and that concentrated conservation does work.
