Life on the Edge: Images of Carcross, Yukon Territory
Each spring, the ice leaves early on a small area of Lake Bennett near its outlet, and Trumpeter and Tundra swans congregate there to rest, feed and socialize on their annual migration north. Though the numbers are not as large as at Marsh Lake, further
down the Yukon River system, it is not unusual to see over 60 swans at a time, along with 100 or more ducks of several species. This photo was taken from my sundeck on
April 10, 2004, made by simply holding the camera up to the eyepiece of my spotting scope. See The Spiritual Swan for more information.
