A Mother's Day treat for me..

This Swan, probably the same one as the other day, but there is a pair of them there, was quite interested in me and wasn't too concerned that I was as close as I could get to him, he just wanted a snack !!

This fellow thought I was pretty interesting, he only had one leg and hobbled around on it, and was checking me out !!

Haha!! Not sure if this is a Mothers day peck on the cheek,
or he was telling her to "shut the ... up "!! sweet anyway, eh !!

And leaving the best for last, this is a Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker,
possibly a juvenile, I think a female, she was very vocal and let me take lots of shots of her before leaving !!

All in all, got some nice ones on Mothers Day !! I was elated !! :)
