This little brave soul (far left) decided to take his first steps ...
After all of that he hadn't moved more than an inch, but was probably feeling quite proud of himself ... or just confused as to what had happened to his lake :(
Cygnet #2 says ... "Look Mom, I can turn my head without falling" :)
And Cygnet #3 (under Dad's watchful eye) says ... "I am not budging!"
The good news is, I took my dog for a walk and when I returned they were all gone. I took that to mean that they had not only figured out how to walk on the ice, but to take a running start so they could fly. In nature, you learn quickly ... They have been back several times. They still look awkward, but they clearly know what to do now.
P.S. These photos were taken at a long distance and had to be digitally zoomed in order to show the detail so the quality is not what I would like it to be, but I think you can follow the story line. Have a great week everybody :)
