And Then There Were Four

The swans interlocked
Captured in the moment

Unsuspecting viewer and
Unsuspecting swans

Swans, they say, mate for life
So, are they in love?
At a glance, looks like it

They're flanked by two others
The one facing in alongside
And the other facing forward fishing

What is their relationship?
Are they family?

Private moments
In public spaces

A theme that’s current
Ancient birds in a modern world

Special connections put under the scope
When they need to be left in peace
