Babs Young has been out and about during the pretty weather, camera in tow. She writes: This is the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix near East Jordan last Friday. Now I think these swans will ferry the fishers to and from their ice shanties. It has grown a little colder and we’ve had a nice shower or two of snow since this picture was taken.
I am always astonished at the fishing shanties out there in sight of open water. Maybe the fishers are counting on the swans to help them out. I have some experience of swans, and I am dubious about their good nature, but who knows?
