Swans 2018

Swans 2018

Hi, Everyone! Because of the holiday season, I’m keeping the blogs short-and-sweet this week and next, with just a nostalgic look at some of my favorite blogs this year. The first one, from March 12th, is all about swans. They’ve always been a favorite of mine, the romantic water-birds that they are. Who can forget the tale of the Ugly Duckling? Are swans a favorite of yours?

To take a look at the original blog, watch the videos or review the funfacts, go here. The photographs, however, are the same in both blogs! Enjoy!

  1. Lovely, serene and fierce, swans are always a favorite of mine. I miss the black swans that used to swim in the castle moat.

  2. They are just so majestic looking. Love all the pictures, especially with the little ones on Mama’s back-too cute. Merry Christmas to all!! AZ

  3. I think swans are such beautiful and graceful creatures and have always loved to watch them. My favorite photo is the last one of the mom cradling her baby on her back using her wings to protect the little one.

  5. It’s always amazed me that sure an elegant, graceful bird could be so ill tempered.

    I have some beautiful photos of swans. The lighting was perfect. Lucky to be there at the right time.

  6. Revisited this blog. Does the second picture look like “Swan Moon” to anyone??? Or is it just me? Love love love the last picture.
