Swan Lake 1/5

 

Living in Arizona, and Wyoming before, I don't have a lot of experience with swans.

When Frank took me to Stanley Park in Blackpool, I was so taken with their beauty. 

I hope each of these photos will be just different enough from each other,

so as not to bore you!

This is an absolutely brilliant image Elizabeth, so tantalising as you see the eye & wonder what he is thinking
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so very much Chris! I so appreciate your kind praise!
We see so many swans here in Dutchland, Elizabeth, I feel like I'm getting my education...so I totally know what you mean. I will NOT get bored! This is a great start.

I find it difficult to take in you not seeing much of Swans before, I assumed they were all over the place. Anyway this is a lovely picture of one to start off with.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We just don't have them in the arid south west! Thank you so much Brian!
What could ever be boring about swans? : )
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I can't imagine - but you never know! smile
Great shot,Elizabeth,it is easy to take things for granted,such as the Swans,they are beautiful birds,( and they know it) difficult to get an original shot as you have here too,pleased I could introduce them to you.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Frank! So true - I'm sure there are some things we're the same with. They are such gorgeous birds. Thank you for opening up a whole new world of Swan Love! smile

Wonderful capture of an amazing bird - they can be quite balletic in their manoeuvrings to preen themselves
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Anne! They are so elegant - I couldn't take my eyes off of them!
Beautiful... superb image Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Peter!!! Hard to get a bad shot of them!
Beautifully shot and presented, Elizabeth. The dark background really makes the pristine whiteness of the swan stand out.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so very much Beverly! I have to admit it's one of my favorites!
