Swan Song

A little dabble....

A little pause....

A little preening....

A little pose....

Nice photos! I also love those swans! Is it a special swan with black bill?

She is one gracious and beautiful swan! Her actions are telling me there's music in the background.

Nice photos.

(Hi Carletta, sorry for this late visit....)

Happy Fall!

Beautiful! I wish I could see a swan..None around here-that I know of, anyway!

Here the wild swans do not cooperate for near photos. we enjoy them in flight or from a distance on a pond. So good story with your swan.

Hi there - nice picture - I'd be interested to find out what species of swan this is.

While the taxi drivers were "looking out for me" they may have had something other than my welfare in mind! The bird in my shot is perched in "leaves" of a palm tree of some sort.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Pat said...

So pretty! But they can be awfully territorial if you come near their babies!
