Swans moving ahead of dawn

A week ago, shortly before sunrise I found this small flock of Tundra swans in a pond near the Bar U Ranch along Highway 22.  The birds had just started moving around breaking the ice that had formed on the water.  It was cold and quiet – I enjoyed watching the swans sort themselves out, shake off chill and step up onto the ice.
