A pair of swans have been loitering around the river the past few weeks. It's nice to see them. They are not the nicest neighbors but they are lovely to look at and in these winter days, they tend to mind their own business. I saw one this morning that attached itself to a small group of geese. All were tolerant. We can get along.

The week started out very very cold. I drew quickly and the animals were coping as best they could. Then it rained and became less cold. The ice retreated a bit. A pair of swans poked around the dam and I spied an otter (I hadn't seen them in a while) sally forth from the ice into the water. Life goes on.
