Found on a walk through an old cemetery.

It’s fitting these carved Italian statues are part of the Gibbes family mausoleum. One of the most important art museums in the US (Gibbes) was created and funded by the family as Charleston was being rebuilt after the Civil War.

Following these three I watched each of them successfully make a catch all within seconds of each other.

They moved by fast basically eating on the run.

I’ve wondered how photographers capture mated Swans with those heart shaped images. Now I know.

Just wait.

If the birds are in mating season getting close and swimming together is part of the ritual. They do it and a photographer needs the angle. The Swans do the rest.
