These are beautiful birds but I know they can be aggressive some times. I clicked on the closeups - even prettier when you see the glistening waterdrops on the feathers!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gorgeous! Are these the Argyle Lake swans?

I'd give Mama Devon 9-5 odds over Mama Swan. Did D. get the swans to hiss at her?

The sad fact is that as long as there are extremists that believe they are chosen by God to do His will... nothing you do will cause world peace. Sorry, but I'm a realist.It's a nice thought... but so is a bowl of pasta... and with my sugar level so high I can only dream about the bowl of pasta. Where am I going with this? I have no idea. Thanks for the invite though and hope my views don't stop you from visiting again. I'm here to make you smile; and who knows... a smile may bring about world peace. Oh... here we go again.
