I could sit and watch them for hours.
Did you see the mandarin duck on the Scotland Pictures page of the BBC website this morning. Fascinating!

I do wish swans would sit still to have their photo taken - they never do!

The swan reflection is dreamy; very beautiful.

Lovely! Do the swans and Canada geese stay there all winter, or do they fly south to some place warmer?

HKatz said...

I like the clarity of the birds and the wavering quality of their reflections. Great photos.
