The other day I blogged about what a treat it always is to see wild swans. The swans I see are usually gracefully gliding across the water. The other day I got an even bigger thrill seeing that lone swan in flight. Luckily, I saw it from a distance, winging its way toward me, so I had time enough to dig my camera out from under my coat, get turn it on, and aim it, and get a photo.
Their unusual shape during flight is so streamlined, aerodynamic, and beautiful. Swans not only exhibit amazing gracefulness when in the water, but also in the air.
