Swans.................. making sure they look smart enough to appear on my blog

Mute and Black Swans preening... Moore Nature Reserve.


They were only a few feet apart from each other when I captured these clips.

The Swans are beautiful, specially the Black Swan.

The Black Swans are just gorgeous! I wish we had them here.

I loved what the swan was doing from around 22 seconds, and to the end...seems so happy...not a care in the world!

I don't think I have ever seen a black swan in real life. Wonderful.

Great to see and video both swans so close together. I only ever see Black Swans around here - but they are native to here so that's the way it should be!
