I/Alphabe-Thursday

 Swan assessing hole in the ice

I is for ICE, ICY and ICICLES

Is the mute swan wondering if its tush is too big to fit in the hole?

Here you see melting ice during last week's January thaw.

It must be born a mathematician to access the hole in the ice.

George said...

This is a marvelous 'I' post. Your caption for the first picture is perfect. I also like the icicles on the granite.

Pamela Gordon said...

Wonderful photos but the one of the swan is so beautiful.

Judy said...

It sure does look cold. What a beautiful swan shot!

Giga said...

Lepiej niech nie wchodzi do małej szczeliny, bo jeszcze ugrzęźnie w lodzie. Drugie zdjęcie mroźne, ale piękne. Pozdrawiam.
Better not enter into the small gap, because even get bogged down in the ice. The second picture cold, but beautiful. Yours.

Judy said...

Now, I would have said that he is looking at that tiny hole in the ice with total disgust - sort of a "can't they get anything right?" kind of thought.
I love the ice on the side of the highway!! I remember driving past those sorts of icicles and just being in awe of them!!

Gillian Olson said...

Love the icy shots!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

The swan does seem to be calculating something, doesn’t it? I wonder if it is getting cold feet standing on that ice.

Sue said...

Your shot makes that swan seem as if it could start talking any moment.

Amazing.

I like the world in white with a white swan...

see you there! said...

It all makes me shiver! I think that swan is looking rather skeptical about taking a dip. I sure would be.
