Earlier in the spring, we were walking in East Hampton, NY and came upon a swan sitting on her nest at the Town Pond. This beautiful pond was once a watering place for the cattle of the area. But today, the swans pretty much run the show here. We were cautioned to keep our distance, as swans can be really mean.
Here we are last spring trying to say hello to the swan. She started hissing at us. Can you imagine?
