Collectors Print #19 - Trumpeter Swan on New Year's Eve

"Minnesota leads the nation in reintroducing the Trumpeter Swan after the North American population fell to dangerously low numbers and was on the verge of extinction. The Trumpeter Swan is the largest waterfowl species native to North America with a wingspan of over 7 feet. I photographed this Trumpeter Swan on the Mississippi River in -30˙F on New Years Eve 2008."

  3. thanks for the inspiration.
