Seeking RefugeSeeking Refuge


As the temperatures went downhill faster than a downhill racer on an icy slope, the skim ice quickly spread and thickened to the point where the lake froze solid.  I was able to sit watching as the fluid lake solidified quickly driving the swans and geese ashore to avoid getting entrapped.

This male mute swan took up temporary refuge in the wetland area behind our home.  It was so close, and the look on it's face seemed to display displeasure with its situation that my dog and I chose a different route to get outside.

Must admit, if I read the swans thoughts correctly, we were on the same page!!
