Birds of a Feather


Swans

Another winter day. Another snow storm. Another day stuck in the house.

That said ~ extra time to write and be creative. πŸ˜‰

Let’s look on the bright side. This is my 300th blog post, after all. A time to celebrate by focusing on something beautiful.

A walk along the Thames River as it runs between Eton and Windsor is bound to attract a bevy of swans, and other avians, all anticipating a moment of your time and some bird kibble purchased from the local vendor.

So, while my accommodating husband fed the hungry I fed my camera with countless images hoping to digest a good’un.

This one works. In fact, I liked it enough to enlarge and plaque-mount it for my mother as a Christmas gift. She loves swans and was thrilled to receive it.

One observation ~ it’s nice to see water that isn’t frozen … except in time. πŸ˜‰

Just six weeks until spring, folks.

Thanks for visiting,

Dorothy πŸ™‚

    • Oh dear, that would be strange. Hard to believe all that lovely countryside is under water. I have been following the news on Twitter and I know someone in Wales who is holding her breath every time a storm comes through. I do hope our snow storms are not crossing the Atlantic and bringing you all this grief. We got 20 cms more snow today. We are as tired of snow as you must be of rain. Have no idea where all of this is going to go when the big melt starts. Oh well, life goes on. Thanks for stopping by. I hope everything dries up soon. πŸ™‚

      • I’ve no idea how badly the floods will have affected the landscape and wildlife in some areas! I worry for some of our burrowing creatures like the badgers. Much of the grassland that’s been flooded for weeks is habitat for many rodents, birds and the few reptile species native to the UK. I hope the weather patterns return to normal for us all soon!

      • Me too. When the snow and three or more inches of ice under it melts I wonder where it’s all going to go. … The barn owner throws out grain for the wildlife population that hovers around the barn (deer, rabbits, etc.) They can’t forage because of all the ice under the snow. Spring is only 42 days away. Hang in … πŸ™‚
