While I am a Carlow man I have always felt very lucky to be living in Naas. Between the lakes and the canal we have very easy access to enjoy the best nature has to offer.

My laptop is running out of space so I have spent the evening moving last years photographs to a backup drive when I came across this shot. It is from May of last year and I am sure it was taken down at the lake beside the hospital. It is always fascinating to see how the Cygnets manage to make their way onto their parents back.

21st May 2013

At times when I am out with the camera I get so caught up watching what is happening I have to remind myself to take the pictures. Sunday evening was exactly like that. John Rapple who is the chairman of Naas Photography Group rang me to say there were new cygnets on the lake in town. I meet John down there and we spent well over an hour watching the parent swans minding their brood. It was a fantastic reminder of the wonder of mother nature in action. I eventually got around to take some photographs. I will add the settings later but to be honest I am not sure they are that relevant for these type of pictures. As always, comments questions welcome.
