Love is in the air, and on the water, in Austin, Texas.
Wendy Martinez emailed the American-Statesman a photo of a rare moment she captured while hiking near Lady Bird Lake Saturday afternoon. The picture shows two swans huddled together, with their necks forming a heart.
“We were so lucky to have run into the swans that day. You never know where they are going to be!” Martinez said of the encounter. “Most mornings they can be found in front of the row club by Austin High. I also pointed out to my daughter that for years one of the swans was alone and in just the last year he/she found a partner. It is lovely to see them daily swimming around the lake!”
