Happy Families 2


It's hardly surprising that swans are reserved for royalty; there's something very regal in their bearing and while I managed to get fairly close to yesterday's ducks which were so fluffy and cute I wouldn't attempt to approach this black swan mama. She was happy enough to gobble down all the bread people were throwing in the water but scooted away with her brood when I produced the camera...obviously camera shy.

PS Some self publicity: I've just started Around Valbonne Daily Photo if you can spare the time to visit me there.

Not being a swan expert I am wondering if the babies will stay white. Do you know? Just a great photo of mama and babies. I will visit your new blog. Aren't you brave and energetic!!

Beautiful little family.

Graceful as a swan has meaning after looking at this photo. The colour contrast you provided by your subjects heightens the attractiveness of the photo. Good job!
