Cygnus is the latin word for swan. There's a local pond that I frequent that has a pair of mute swans. Recently they have mated and have produced 5 cygnets (chicks). My hope is that they will all stay close by. In the meantime I've painted one of the swans to remind me of my experiences with them, just in case they move on some day.
