I just had a friend staying from Switzerland and she was so excited to see black swans for the first time.
I love seeing them on the calm river at first light.

Your black swans are beautiful Terri. At first glance I thought they were sitting on ice! Could just be all this heat getting to me  :sweat:   Over 100F this week. Helped me feel a bit cooler though!  ;)

Love the swans  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

Beautiful painting of the black Swans Terri.  They are not very common, in fact, I don't think I have ever seen one in real life.    Patricia

We have lots of black swans in Canberra too. These last 2 came swimming up so fast because they thought they were missing out on some food. They were very big and intimidating, not like the others  that gingerly came up to us.

Gorgeous Terri and thanks for the pics for those of us who are black swan deprived.  Really beautiful painting and great texture in the birds
