Swan Family is an exquisite illustration of the delicate beauty that lies in nature. Here, a mother swan and her seven chicks gracefully swim across a pond on an early spring day. Swans are known to be very protective of their nests and chicks, often viciously attacking any perceived threats.
Swans are among the largest flying birds of the waterfowl family Anatidae. Depicted in this painting, the mute swan is the only swan species found in North America since being introduced in the late 19th century.
