Two swans were caught napping near the boat launch at the head-of-the-lake around noon today (Thursday 1/7/16).  Carl Noechel did the “catching” with his camera as he stood near the launch looking east.

Not all swans come away unscathed from a nap on the ice.  Ann Swain tells the story of one that did not a few years ago.  Click here to read it. (If you’re interested in swans, there are several stories scattered through Natural Encounters on this website).
