The line between wildness and domestication

I vicariously explored the line between wildness and domestication today. One of the four resident swan babies decided to pay an up close and personal visit today. I fed him bread bits in order to get some fantastic photos... he's still gray, will get his white adult feathers very soon and fly away for the winter where hopefully he will learn that humans are dangerous and that he should keep his distance.

In the meantime, here is documented proof of this wild encounter:

That white thing in the photo is my knee... for perspective...
