Mute Swans

How do you organize an outer space party?

You planet.

Interesting Fact: The Mute Swan is reported to mate for life. However, changing of mates does occur infrequently, and swans will remate if their partner dies. If a male loses his mate and pairs with a young female, she joins him on his territory. If he mates with an older female, they go to hers. If a female loses her mate, she remates quickly and usually chooses a younger male.  ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Mute_Swan/lifehistory )


  1. Did you know that all the swans in England are owned by the queen? I wonder how they know they are English swans. Do they need visa’s to fly to another country? What if a swan flies in from another country does it become the queen’s?

  2. Interesting capture with that green, murky water. I see the smudge on the right swan. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yeah, the whole lake was cover in algae, and only the two swans in the middle of it. It was quite a sight. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We have that icky and awful algae bloom here in Michigan too. The ducks paddle right through it. Great picture and the caption is spot on!

    • I personally donโ€™t like it as well, but it does make the photos look nice. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. He’s lying Sam. He ate those green eggs and ham, and he liked it.

  5. I love the play of light that adds delicacy to the elegant look of the birds – though I also know first hand they can be nasty.
