Swan and Water Lily

I drove over to a public dock to see if I could get close enough to photograph some water lilies in bloom.  I think I was just a few days too early; I expect that these yellow blooms will open and spread out after a bit more time in the sun. The scene was beautiful, though, and I loved the watery reflection of the reeds on the surface.  

I was about to leave when I noticed...
A mother and father swan taking their 5 kids out for a swim after dinner!  It was so sweet, I only wish they were closer.  I was really pushing my "zoom" and the quality suffered, but at least you can see them, happy and relaxing in their natural habitat.
