Soft As A Feather!  by naturelover

Have a few of these – well more than a few taken at the Abbotsbury Swannery here in Dorset UK.
There was so much preening going on- with feathers floating everywhere-and captured this one deep in it’s own feathery down!!

    Beautiful Pauline. I love these swan images. They are something we don’t see a lot of here in Tasmania. We seem to get a lot of black ones in the South of the state – but few up where I live on the Noth West.

  • Many thanks for the fav and the lovely comment Sharon- there were only 4 black swans there that I saw- and they were tiny in comparison and bullied by the white ones lol!!!
