This image is of The Trumpeter Swan Sculpture in the Midland, Ontario Harbour that I took a few days ago. Created by artist Ron Hunt and erected in 2001 by the Town of Midland, it honours North America’s largest waterfowl the Trumpeter Swan, considered an endangered species in the 1980s. Thanks to the efforts of the Wye Marsh, their population has been nurtured back to health.

Congrats on 50,000! 🙂 This is a very cool sculpture, and with this angle, it almost looks like it’s flying in the sky!
Thanks Holly! 🙂 I know, it’s a great piece, really quite large and I was able to angle myself under it and capture the sky.
thanks so much! it’s hard to believe…
Well done Sheila on your 50,000 views! Your excellent work is enjoyed by very many and is certainly an inspiration to me – and has been since I started blogging a couple of months ago. Your daily posting – for almost 2 years!! – is also inspiring and encouraging.
This is a wonderful shot of a very beautiful sculpture and is a good choice to mark a milestone! So, here’s to the next 50,000 views ………
Thanks very much Meanderer – the schedule feature sure helps for when I’m away ha ha… I really appreciate your lovely comments and interest in my photographs.
