Beautiful shot! Do you have any black swans in your neck of the woods? Here in Canada we only have the white ones. Happy WW

There's something unreal-looking about a swan's perfection, I think.

Lovely photo.

A nice shot, and it's rainy here too!

Did they ever replace the black pair at Langtons that got killed my some pea-brained cave men a few years back?

Lovely swan - thankfully no geese as they hate me! The last time I was at Langtons there was a huge thunderstorm and the only place to shelter was under the trees :-o

That is just lovely. Swans are so beautiful. That picture has an almost "Oriental" feel to it with the trees and colors.

Great photo for WW! Whenever I see a swan I think about the ugly duckling...

My WW post provides gift ideas for your consideration! (smile)

Beautiful. But swans usually go in a pair, right? Where's the other one? Good day to you (=

Beautiful photo, Jams! I love the rippling water - it gives the still an energy.

I guess the rain waited for us to leave! We were in Scotland the last two weeks of September with very nice weather. The ducks and swans were hurting.
Thanks for the visit. Happy WW!

I enjoy the way the swan's head is slightly tilted. She looks curious and interested in something there.
