With permission from the landowner and a simple telephoto lens, we were
able to catch a shot of this swan family Friday evening on the Harry Schaller
pond seven miles north of Storm Lake. We witnessed the male swan chase
off a small flock of Canada geese that attempted to land on the pond.
“They tolerate the ducks, but they don’t like the Canada geese,” said
Orren Knoffloch of the local swan restoration committee. TIMES photo
