I am getting the eye. And by extension, so are you. Move slowly, I warn you. This Mute Swan at Audubon Park is wary of me. Just wants to be left alone to go back to sleep in the warm sun. She opened her eyes when I got near, but didn't move a bit. Apparently there is some line that you have to cross before she goes into level 2 of wariness. I didn't see the line, but I found out it was there by getting just a little too close. She raised her neck up full length and started squawking her displeasure. Hey, don't feel so smug. She can see you, too, standing behind me. And she ain't happy.
