Growing old Gracefully


Continuing from yesterday's post, taken two weeks ago at Oxford Island Lough Neagh.  These maturing young swans were so graceful and elegant.



This is the hide at Oxford Island, but was not opened the day we visited.


Many commented on yesterday's photo of the stainless steel waves on the shore and I cannot find any other info but they are not perhaps as dangerous as they seem as the edges are not sharp at all.

This is my daughter investigating them...


Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the hide on the island. It's very small and It is very visible, so not a very good hide.
    Love also the strong blue color in these photos. And the swans are great
