Numbered swan? I'm a little lost here... But anyway I hope it means something good for the gorgeous critter.
God bless you!

Lowell said...

Beautiful photography. I'm happy to trumpet your skills!

Glorious!

There are a pair of swans on the reservoir here too, but too far away to see if they have a number tag.

Shammickite said...

I wonder what blog by fermentation means? :-)

Genie said...

They are gorgeous...what stately water fowl. Are those tags for following them on their sides? Great close ups. genie

Halcyon said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So it's banded? Such a beautiful bird, so regal.

VioletSky said...

Lovely swan. Possibly a friend to my Mute? (he was found at LasallePark)

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Ah, 907! I wondered why it said LOG on its wing. But I can see well enough that it's a beautiful creature.

Rose said...

The ones we see that are banded, have a band around their neck...btw, these are wonderful pictures. I am a bit envious.

TexWisGirl said...

such a beauty.

RedPat said...

So beautiful!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I hope we never see the day that corporate sponser's logos appear on our tagged and numbered wildlife like race cars. (;^0)

Paul in Powell River said...

Got me too - I thought it said "LOG", but then it's still early here.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

What a shame the tag is quite so obvious, beautiful photos though.

Lovely shots! Swans ares so beautiful.

Kathy said...

I've never seen a bird tagged that way. Usually there's a band around their foot. Maybe it's attached to a wing (?) since its feet are always underwater?

Jack said...

Swans are so elegant, but I hear they are very messy and very hostile birds. Like bigger and more hostile Canada geese.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Beautiful photos.

Regards and best wishes

Gorgeous shot. We have many of them here on a farm field in Courtenay.

Judy said...

I love swans, but there are none in the area. Sigh. I will just have to look at yours...

Daniel LaFrance said...

I dare say, I heard a Trumpet and saw one too!



Bless your lucky charms! Those pics have a shimmer of green! ;-)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

#907 is certainly a an elegant animal.

Carletta said...

I'm wondering why the tag needs to be so big.
Great shots in the sunshine!
