Three Snowy Swans
Today's image is titled Three Snowy Swans and was taken by Karen Darcy.
While Lake Monona finally froze over officially last Thursday, small patches of open water remain on its isthmus shore, thanks to city effluence. The open water provides a liquid home for waterfowl remaining in the region, including ducks, geese and swans. This photo depicts three swans surrounded by ducks near B.B. Clarke Beach. A photo taken by Laura Miller shows a similar avian gathering, with Monona Terrace looming in the background.
