    Up here in the the Great White North, (Minnesota) there's a town called Monticello.
    In this town, there's a woman who has done quite a bit to help out the Trumpeter Swan population.
    From Dec to March, she helps feed the 1000 - 1200 swans that stay the winter.
    When she started doing this 21 years ago, there were about 20 pairs.

    There is a power plant upstream from her (Sheila's) house, and when the temps dip below zero F, steam rises up from the river making for some very dramatic scenes.

    Here are a few shots from Monitcello, Mn. over the last couple of years.

    Nice series. The second one, 4th and 6th are the best.

    But at the 4th one I dont like much the swams from the background. They disturb a little. So, since I saw you allow editing to your photos, I took the liberty to delete those:

    Hope you dont mind
