A protective wing...

This gorgeous picture appeared in Adelaide's The Advertiser (from the Daily Mail, London) this morning.
"The mute swan and her fluffy cargo were caught on camera by Richard Meston on a visit to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens near Sidmouth, Devon, in the UK."
"The cygnets had been splashing in the water around their mum. They looked like they were starting to get tired and, one by one, started to scramble up on their mum's back. She didn't mind at all and even gave them a nudge up. After they got settled in, she covered them with her wings, protectively like a cushion and went on her way." Mr Meston, 32, said.
