The Darkness That Surrounds Us Cannot Hurt Us. It Is The Darkness In Your Own Heart You Should Fear.

Mute Swan

Why did The Joker have to sleep with his lights on?

Because he was afraid of the Dark Knight.

Interesting Fact: Short legs placed well back on the body give Mute Swans an awkward walking gait, but the birds can run quickly if pursued and can take off from land and water, flying with head and neck extended. On the water they sometimes hold their wings slightly raised and “sail” with the wind. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Mute_Swan/lifehistory )

  1. A most striking image with the dark background. Was this swan’s leg hurt? I don’t think I have ever see one lift a leg out of the water like that.

    • I do too, they are quite amazing and majestic birds. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Stay Safe and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. Thank you very much, I don’t think it was hurt, because it lifted its leg stretch and put it back in the water and continue to swim. You are really good on picking up on the details of my images. Stay Safe and Happy Blogging! 🙂
