Resident Swans and their Signets

As this can often be a very busy and anxious
time around preparing for Christmas
I just wanted to share
these beautiful 
to bring a little peace and tranquility 
to your days as you go about
planning what your Christmas Day
should really be celebrating!


 This pair of beautiful black swans


obviously felt it was time to introduce


their amazing offspring to us up close!



 They came right up to us and out of the water
with no fear of getting too close!


They are so graceful and stately in the water
and look so elegant when paddling in line!
following the direction of
their parents!

 I hope these gorgeous creatures signify to us
why there is no need to rush around
seeking those things which, 
in the end, are really unimportant!

May be these images help us reflect upon what really
is important this time of year - such as
serenity, peace, love and sharing friendliness
towards each other!

Happy Festive Season to each and all of you
my friends!

  1. Hello dear Suzy
    What wonderful experience with these swans, it's amazing and so beautiful. I understan what you feel when you met them. It seem something so simple, but in reality, you're right, it's one these essentiel moment of the life!
    I wish you a merry Christmas!
    Hugs and kisses

  2. What beautiful creatures and a lovely family! They looks so peaceful, with not a care in the world.

    Thank you for sharing and have a lovely Christmas dear Suzy and hubby ~ FlowerLady

  3. I have never seen a Black Swan. Cool. We have Mute Swans on the St. Joseph River and they are very mean and aggressive. They like to attack fishermen in their boats on the river. It's cool that you could get so close to the Black Ones.
    Merry Christmas

    In the one picture,sixth one down, those rings in the forefront, is that the opened feathers of one of the swans?
