A pair of Mute swans were hanging out near the Paradise dock this afternoon. I had heard they were near the three mile bridge a few months ago and didn't realize they had made their way back to the island. Paradise has a fish food dispenser on the dock where you can put in a couple of quarters and buy a handful of pellets to feed the fish. The swans, however, have decided it's actually for them and will even eat out of your hand! Not that I plan to give it a try!
Thanks, Mr. Drees, for bringing out an umbrella to keep me dry while I got a few shots.
