Swan Lake

It was all happening with lots of water, courting, nesting & cygnets at Swan Lake, Phillip Island.

Catching a lift with Mum (or is it Dad?)*

* I have since read (Pizzey & Knight): "Male: bill and neck longer & straighter". So I guess it is Mum that is providing the ferry service!

The silver princess is flowering and word has got around. When the noisy miners let them, we are getting close encounters with rainbow lorikeets in the front yard!
