CC The Hungry Swan








To enlarge click first on "View All Images" then on "Original View"


On my way to my work at the Eastern European Outreach I saw this pond with all kind of waterbirds. One of the swans came to me, thinking I came to feed him. I only came to take his photo, which was difficult enough, for he kept turning his head. He was beautiful though.

Nothing like stopping to smell the roses, or in this case: viewing the cygnets. It's funny how they are embraces as a universal symbol of marriage. My wife felt very strongly about having them featured on our wedding invitations, as opposed to our native egrets and herons. That's one symbolic bird.

I find it amazing the way they can bend and twist their necks. Nice photos.

Wow Reader Wil, these are beautiful. I used to ride my bike to Gaasperplas and feed the swans and mallards there. I love your idea of making a slideshow for us.

One of my favourite water birds are the swans. They have an elegance about them the others don't.

Lovely swans reader wil. I suppose you felt guilty about not having a supply of bread in your pocket for him,
Hope the weather is not too bad with you - we have heavy snow forecast so are sitting by the fire.

You have three beautiful grandchildren. The swan photo's are lovely.

RuneE said...

Just as long as you didn't get him angry! I'm told that pictures of swans should be taken by tele-photo lenses :-)

But you did well!
