PhotoHunter: flexible

It was windy today so I thought it would be perfect for the theme to find trees being blown in the wind.


But by the time I got out, the wind really wasn't strong enough for a wind in the willows shot. I turned my attention to the water weed in the river which is totally flexible as it flows in the current. The water's amazingly clear here.


As I was watching it, the swans assumed my main purpose in life was to feed them and came over to see what I had to offer.


In doing so, they demonstrated the beautiful flexibility of their necks.


Then it all became too much for this one who settled down....


....for a nice afternoon nap. I wish I could do that!

PS I have realised now that swans are beautiful but not very bright. While they were looking around serenely and elegantly, the ducks were dashing about picking up all the bread before the swans had worked out in which direction to go.

  20. It is a dilemma, do you look good gracefully floating around, but hungry or do you frantically flap around without grace and have a full belly...ahh decisions decisions.
