Cygnet is the name given to baby swans. A mutual friend of Pat and I tipped us off to the location of some cygnets. After a short search, we found the family barely 20 feet from the edge of a rather busy road. Risking life and limb, Pat and I crossed the road and edged our way to the reeds surrounding the small lake. We were able to get some good shots as the proud parents watched us with a wary eye.
