19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Trumpeter Swan and Mallard ducks

Every year in Sitka, Alaska small groups migrate through the town stopping and join the local mallard ducks. Since locals regularly feed the mallards the migrating swans readily join them to be fed. They soon become quite tolerant of people allowing for photo ops.
