Swans

There was a pair of Mute Swans up at Heron Park...at first I only seen the one above....but then I looked closer.


 I saw that there were two of them...


They were both preening...


We watched for several minutes and they stayed busy...


With these photos I am linking to I'd Rather B Birdin'

So beautiful! What a peaceful and wonderful moment. I like the huge round leaves in the background, too. And that stick sticking up out of the water...it looks like a snake is getting ready to strike the swan!

Swans are so graceful. These are lovely pictures, Rose. I have a blog friend who loves the Swans and takes pictures of them all the time, Kim at "Imagery by Kimberly" on my side bar. I think you would enjoy her pictures very much. : )
