Swim At Your Own Risk


F/5.6, 1/125, ISO 320.

Mute Swan

Why did the teacher jump into the water?

She wanted to test the water!

Interesting Fact: The black knob at the base of the male Mute Swan’s bill swells during the breeding season and becomes noticeably larger than the female’s. The rest of the year the difference between the sexes is not obvious.  ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Mute_Swan/lifehistory )


  1. Yesterday I saw the same. I love watching the swans swimming in an almost frozen lake. they are gorgeous. But your photo captures it all.

  2. Stunning! There’s a pond I drive by on my commute, and there are usually two to four swans floating in pure tranquility. They make my day. πŸ™‚ Wonderful photo.

    • Thank you very much, they are so peaceful to watch. I really appreciate you stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
