I don't think of swans as being a particularly rare bird, but I don't see them very often either.  Usually, it is from a distance as in this image taken near sunrise. Maybe it is because most species migrate to this area during the coldest months and I tend to venture out less frequently to film at that time. I did see three in a sheltered area down at North Beach last winter, but I didn't have my camera with me at the time.  They were interesting to watch, though.  They were in water almost shallow enough to stand in and they would kick up mud on the bottom with their feet, then tip over and feed. I would particularly like to get shots of them either landing or taking off. Maybe this winter...
