Courting Trumpeter Swans

Wild, courting or mating Trumpeter Swans in the Teton Wildlife Refuge. These birds mate for life.

It took me several days of observing their behavior before I was able to determine when they would do this outstretched wing thing, and then it would only last for a split second. There is more information about this image on my blog.
