We paid a Sunday morning visit to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Among my favorite views of the occasion was a Trumpeter Swan (Cygnus buccinator) snoozing in the warm summer shade. Most of the big bird’s bill was tucked beneath the edge of one of its great wings, bits of delicate pure white feather contrasted against the blackness. Another favorite sight was a lounging male lion enjoying the mid-morning sun. The great cat looked so perfectly fluffed as if it had just left a grooming session – shampoo and blow-dry!
