This Juvenile Swan is on its last MOLT then The Swan will become in the first stage as an Adult .Queen Victoria gave 4 of them to Canada as a Gift, I love our Queen Victoria, I am only 57, but we sang God save the Queen every morning , and I am Thankful I LEARNED respect it was not Taught You learned-it "some" teachers in the 60,s 70,s were to busy to care, and as a Child I had to learn Body Language due to family.s inability to communicate, I saw teachers ROLL eyes when singing this, or just pretending, especially "Oh Canada".The Biggest UNION in Canada is the Teachers Union, and they(SOME) still get all Summer-off and not all Teachers were NON caring, just Most of them, They are Human also.And Love many

Nice are you doing Doug ? Are you still fighting " City Hall " as they say? Have you moved yet ? I am getting ready for Christmas how about you ? Is Santa bringing you something nice for Christmas ? Lol

By the way what lens do you use for your bird shots? They always look very sharp and clear? Do you have any snow yet ? I know I am full of questions I hope you don't mind? I am just a chatter bug that's all. That's why I have the award for chit chat ! Lol

Great shot, beautiful subject! I really appreciate the information you add to your photos. I have a picture of a mute swan taken in June, that looked dirty, now I can assume it was moulting also. Thank you for sharing your expertise!!!
