Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative. I especially wish to thank Mike(MikeSmith) for his precious UA & all for their continued support.

I hope you may like my image of the graceful Mute Swan which was taken at Bushy Park, S.London recently. It appeared to display the letters So with the curvature of its neck while it was preening its feathers. Swans use their long, curved necks to dip underwater and reach for their food, which includes plants and their roots & seed.

Thanks for looking & have a great day.

For such a large bird the Swan does produce the most elegant shapes.
