I love swans too. They say they mate for life...

 These are at Loch Melfort, just south of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. First time I was there it was just the swans - there are quite a few of them - and next time  they brought 'baby' to show us.

Lovely swans, fidget. I love swans too, 'mate for life'.....that was my intention too ....ho ho ho!

Getting singleated was the best thing I ever did......so come on you swans, the grass is much greener on the other bank!

Fairygirl

Got 'singleated' then met the real swan David...that's the problem!

Maybe a roast one for Christmas dinner would be good - I'm sure Madge wouldn't miss just one little one... 

Do you think the three wise men looked like this?

Can't compete with that, Fairy.......but I do make exceedingly good mince pies.

David - are you really Mr Kipling then? 

They look very tasty. Send one over- slightly warm please. 

Do you make your own mincemeat? I find shop bought pies too sickly because of the filling so we don't usually have them. When I used to make them for my Mum and Dad I added grated apple to the mincemeat to make them less sweet.

Fairygirl - Mr Kipling? If only I had his money!  Some would say I'm a better cook than picture snapper......but that's another story.  

Mincemeat....I used to make my own when I had a family to feed, but hardly seems worth the effort now, just for myself.

Edit: I agree, shop bought stuff is sickly.

Not a good photo and don't know what the bird is but it loved what the shore fishermen disturbed.

No idea whether they mate for life, but they are South African Eagle owl chicks spotted in a park in Cape Town

I think it's a good pic, KEF.....btw, I think it's probably an Egret.

David K

Nice take, punkdoc....I always think owls are good subject material.

KEF

Punkdoc, I love the way the one on the right is curling its claws.

Nothing quite like the beauty of a hellebore close up.
