A Few (a little noisy) Feathers

Above are some photos that were taken during different seasons
at St. James's Park, Westminster, central London, UK, the oldest 
of the Royal Parks of London. 
Like a duck out of water. Canal in Bruges, Belgium. 
I love swans. Don't you?
Two...
Three...
Four ducks! Kastoria, North Greece. 

I really like this little wall in the photos above. I think it was simply a coincidence, but it served as the perfect background to these lovely ducks.
Not the cry, but the flight of the wild duck leads the flock to fly and follow. Chinese Proverb.
                      
Hope you all have a happy weekend, dear friends! xx

I love Camera Critters .

Looks so serene and peaceful, even if it probably wasn't silent when you shot these. They are certainly capable of making plenty of racket. Have a wonderful weekend!

Swans are beautiful but they can be aggressive too! I remember one attacking my father in a park was I was just a kid.

chubskulit said...

Now, that is what I call beauty!

Please come and see my critter post. Have a great weekend!

Birgitta - foto CHIP said...

I love the first and close up - is it qurious or angry? It looks friendly :)

Nevine said...

Your little birds are precious and lovely... probably more so because they were so happy to be frozen in time by you. What is more beautiful than ducks and swans... and Bruges? Oh, for me... that is beauty itself.

I hope you enjoy your Sunday, dearest!

Big hugs and kisses,
Nevine

Not many swans in our neck of the woods, but these are majestic, and in a lovely setting - a beautiful canal and bridge in a couple of shots. And your other feathered friends are equally marvelous !

Ladynred said...

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Hi there! Sadly, my dashboard problem is ongoing. Every so often, the blogs I follow will reappear, but it never lasts more than a day. I know I can see them through the View in Google Reader option, but it's just not the same!

Have a great Easter!
