Camera Critters #99, Shadow Shot Sunday #93, Swim, swan, swim

Swan, swim over the sea.
Swim, swan, swim!
Swan, swim back again.
Well swum, swan!




These swans didn't swim over the sea but they did swim very fast towards us, expecting (and receiving) food and then they swam away again when it was all gone!
Thanks must go to Misty Dawn and Tracy, the organisers and hosts of these enjoyable memes. If you would like to see more, please click on Camera Critters and/or Shadow Shot Sunday

  7. These are amazing photos. Mallards and swans swimming together.
    I think swans elicit everyone's admiration by their elegant look. Unfortunately we don't have them in the last years.

  8. Beautiful swans. I travel to another community for lunch sometimes where there is a private home that raises them in their own large pond.
    I could sit for hours and watch them drift around the lake but when they have their babies they can get rather protective when you get too close.

  15. Glad to see you are back. The swans are so poised! The shadows on them and the water rippling offer
    lots to think about photographically.

  16. Thank you everyone! The photo credits must go to Barry - he's far more patient than I am and takes time over his shots.
