Distorted Reflections of a Trumpeter Swan

Gentle ripples distort the reflections of this Trumpeter Swan at Swan Lake Iris Gardens, Sumter, SC.

Trumpeter Swans are our biggest native waterfowl, stretching to 6 feet in length and weighing more than 25 pounds – almost twice as massive as a Tundra Swan. Getting airborne requires a lumbering takeoff along a 100-yard runway.
