A fine family shot, the parents with the offspring: often there are 4 to 6 cygnets to a brood I am wondering if there could be others hidden from view.

They'll be taking swimming lessons now, Steve
A better opportunity may present itself to get more images of all 6?
It's a beautiful image, though.
