  2. Stunning photo. I must admit that, when I first glanced at the quotation, I misread Ossietzky as Gretzky. Go Oilers!

  6. Was just reading in the paper tonight how all of the swans are counted every year- on the Thames I think. And it has been going on since the 12th century! Beautiful photo, Martha!

    1. That is pretty amazing, Francie! The two I photographed at this river (this one is one of them) were tagged. I guess they're being monitored in some way.

    1. I got really close to this one and his/her partner. I guess their nesting period is over or they would have gone nuts on me...LOL...
