Lake Eola also has several Whooper Swans. These swans are native to Europe, but here they are in Orlando, FL. They resemble Trumpeter and Tundra Swans to me, but with much more yellow on the bill. These birds can way over 25 pounds, making them one of the world’s heaviest flying birds.
Scott Simmons, based in Florida, is a lover of nature, landscape, and wildlife photography. Scott became interested in photography in 2001 when he was given his first SLR camera. When he acquired a telephoto lens, he became progressively more interested in birds and other wildlife. Scott enjoys learning about bird habitats and behavior, striving always to take images that are both beautiful and interpretive. Scott believes photography is a great vehicle to help others to appreciate the wonder for the stuff of earth.
