268 – Flight of the Tundra Swans

I meant to post this a couple weeks ago when I snapped this, as the ice is completely gone now, but I was blessed to come across these gorgeous tundra swans relaxing on Lesser Slave Lake.  Each year about 3500 tundra swans stop for a rest at the lake in the Spring and Fall on their way through.
