Swans for Saturday Critters

 Getting into the Christmas theme!

Not quite seven swans a-swimming but when I saw this family of swans back in October I had to jump off my bike and use my phone camera to snap them on the canal, so sorry its not the best!


The next two were taken earlier in the week at a different location.




Happy to be linking with Eileen at Saturday's Critters

and Camera-Critters

Do visit and see a wonderful selection of creatures!

Best wishes and thanks!

  4. I just love swans. But I have heard that they can be aggressive. Is that true? They are considered a bit of a mythical creature around here. We so rarely get to see them. I sometimes catch a glimpse of a few as they migrated, but none have ever settled in our area as far as I know.

  11. Dearest Christine; Oh,Lovely swans♪ Well, swans always make me feel a bit sad and reminiscent. In our city park with big lake, we used to have almost 400 of them and remember enjoyed their elegance a lot♡♡♡ But due to the bird flu, they all had to be killed... Thank you SO much for your pretty photos of them.
    I REALLY appreciate your thoughtful comment♬♬♬ As my first motive of starting the blog is introducing Japan to another world as much as I can, so your sweet comment brought me rewarding feeling☆☆☆

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my new friend in England, xoxo Miyako*

  12. How lovely Christine, they are such beautiful birds and your photos are great. Getting to see swans when I was in England was a highlight of my holiday. I don't get to see them too often in my area.

  17. I think swans are so pretty! Those last two pictures make me think of the story about the Ugly Duckling. :)
