In the "Ugly Duckling", the mismatched duckling became a swan, but in this guy's case, he never has changed. I am sure he is never going to make a good picture since that pose happens quick each time a camera is pointed his way. A family joke perhaps, this guy still works in his late 70's. Says it is what keeps him alive. My guess it is so his wife doesn't kill him. He has painted for my family for years, and does good work fast.
Also, the Trumpeter Swans have been hanging around for a few weeks and keeping me busy watching them. They move so effortlessly and in great sync with each other. The darker ones are youngsters, still wearing that grey.
I was trying to see how large of group I could fit in a frame. There were 88 today, so a treat to watch.
