Swan Lake

As we ambled about our local man-made lake this afternoon the Black Swans were very busy attending to their personal hygiene and frilly white linen.



This “knot” is a preening Black Swan.


And this Swan was vigorously working water through all of its feathers.  It put on a wonderful water ballet performance for us.

      No neck stiffness in these birds! If we bathed in this fashion there would be no water left in a bath. It was very funny watching the gymnastics. Clean as a whistle as my Dad would often say.
      I am more modest where my linen airing is concerned:-)

        So many feathered birds have “whiter than white” intimate garments and like Mabel Howard waving bloomers in Parliament they are not shy!
