Swans!

While in Florida at the park,
we saw swans!!!!

You know ME.
I couldn't NOT photograph them, for cryin' out loud!

So today, sit back...think SPRING, peacefulness, soft breezes coming in your windows....
and enjoy.....

















Two beauties...
































They automatically signal peacefulness and grace to me:








Now...everybody....together....
take one deep CLEANSING breath....IN.......and OUT......

Feel better?????

Do you suppose they are in love? They act like a couple.

Very calming and very good photos. Swans mate for life. I love that. Recently we have been following a court case about a man who purposely ran over a swan killing it with a jet ski.

beautiful story and swans, the last two shots are really really gorgeous. there were black swans, a couple like this, but black, at Jungle Gardens, one died and the one left behind breaks my heart every time i see him. no windows open here since it is now in the 90's each day, hot and humid, summer is here. the swans will love it though.

Beautiful swans! They're so graceful!

Beautiful pictures! I can't see swans without thinking of my sister who passed away 2 years ago. On her death-bed she kept drifting off and then waking she kept commenting on the beautiful swans, asking if we saw them. She knew she passing away and she said it was beautiful where she was going. She was happy.

Regal beauty is what swans personify. You have some lovely pictures.

Grandmother said...

Me too, the second to the last and the way you capture water texture. Lovely.

They are so regal and elegant. Just seeing them does make me feel relaxed and less stressed.
