Mute Swan male (Cygnus olor) at Abbotsbury Swannery, Dorset, England, 05-Jun-14. This guy was a real model, swivelling in the stream displaying his most graceful poses. Worth the visit to see him alone! ;o)

    Just magnificent. The kind of image that catches your breath and holds it as you drink in the beauty. Well seen and done.

  • Thanks so much Bunny! Hugs from me and my Bunnies! ;o)

    Bravo, Krys! Go to the head of the class!

  • Thanks Bonnie! This guy really knew how to model. If the trip only produced pictures of him, it would be worth it! Hope you’re doing better!!! ;o)
