Challenge: June Free Study (Advanced Editing II)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 700
Location: Narragansett Bay, East Providence, RI
Date: Jun 28, 2004
ISO: 80
Galleries: Family, Nature
Date Uploaded: Jun 12, 2004

We were feeding the male leftover muffins and scones and eventually he called to his mate and their two cygnets. I took close to a hundred shots and came up with about four I liked enough to submit. Then it came down to selecting which of those to submit. In the end I picked this because the parents are looking so tenderly at their babies. They were very protective and never let us get closer then about four feet.
Sadly, this area of the Bay is rather polluted due to the potential for sewer overflow. There is actually a sign warning people to stay away.

I like the interest displayed by the parents. Nicely cropped. An 8.
