My name is D.J. A few years ago I moved to one of the most beautiful places in the world--Pensacola Beach, Florida. I love exploring the beach, documenting its changes with my photos, volunteering to help our sea turtles, attending concerts on the beach in the summer, and participating in many of the events we have throughout the year. I also enjoy sharing my photographs with you so that you can appreciate the beauty of our very special island.
That really is incredible.Swans aren't usually very friendly.
I spent an entire season photographing a family of mute swans (with five babies). The cygnets were born in about May, I think, and within a month or so the parents were letting the babies climb into my lap. By July of that year the adults would let me stroke their necks. Of course I sat with them for months, many hours a day. I got "charged" a few times when the babies were on land and the adults were in the water--they'd swim at me full speed if I tried to touch one of the young ones--they came at me like motorboats. But they always backed down. Though I think if they hadn't, I probably would have :) The worst thing they did was to steal food out of my hand on a regular basis--my food.
