Pair of Cygnets
Photographer: LISA SHIRLEY
Location: Rantoul, IL
Story: 
On June 15th, Fathers Day, while visiting a farm in Central Illinois, I took this picture of a pair of baby swans (cygnets) as they were resting in their pen with their mother. They need to be penned in to protect them from predators, mainly coyotes, while they are young. Their father fell pray to a coyote about a month ago and unfortunately never made it to Father's Day.
