When we were recently dining with friends at a restaurant with a small pond outside, I noticed a swan. Not unusual. There are usually swans, ducks and geese in this pond, mainly because the restaurant will give to guests, if they ask, a bucket of stale bread to throw to them … a pretty reliable guarantee that there will always be water fowl around for guests to watch!
But I noticed this particular swan because of what it was doing with its wings.
I have a ceramic swan that is posed in the same way
and the living swan was a very lovely recreation of that elegant look.
I had never actually seen a swan strike this pose before. It held its wings in this position for quite a while as it swam around. Obviously, long enough for me to get my camera out and take some pictures.
What beautiful lines.
A nice little addition to dinner, and this “treat” added no calories!
