Mute swans enjoying floating algae

Trying to be just like mom, this little swan signet enjoys some healthy veggies from the pond. The photographer writes, "With the sudden warm weather, the algae has risen to the surface, where the signets are getting a great benefit. The parents otherwise have to reach down and pull it up for them."
