Sa majesté le cygne, à sa toilette

Cygnus olor
Anseriformes - Anatidae

Si commun dans certaines régions mais difficile à voir dans la mienne, c'est au Teich que je me régale de voir ce magnifique oiseau blanc. Celui-ci était très loin (environ 90 m), le temps encore à la pluie mais je suis parvenue à faire des clichés publiables!


The Mute swan is not a species I come across easily in my area but I enjoy watching these swans on the Atlantic coast at Le Teich ornitho preserve. This one was at about 90 m away, the weather close to rain but under-exposing got me these decent pics:

Magnificent images Noushka.
I frequently see 50 to 100+ unattached Mutes on the Fenland fields. There are always small numbers on the lakes as well where I walk frequently.

Hi Noushka, what a series of super images of a very graceful swan, these are a swan we see on a regular basis at Rutland Water in large numbers. We are at the moment getting Whooper Swans passing through our local waters. Hope to see some tomorrow if lucky. Have a good rest of the week. Regards John

They are so beautiful but I would not like to disagree with and angry one! By prerogative right, the British Crown enjoys ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water in England. Not sure anyone owns them in France. Have a good evening and keep warm, hugs Diane

Hi Noushka,
After a break I am back again. The mute swan can perform a great show, when he or she is busing cleaning the feathers. Surprisingly a few of the pics are more or less the same as I recently made.
greetings, Kees

Quelle belle série que l'heure de la toilette de ce beau cygne. La première je la trouve formidable car on dirait qu'il s'est endormi.. mais c'est pour mieux nous tromper lol.
Bonne fin de semaine Noushka, plein de bisous et toute mon amitié.

Hello Noushka, some great captures of the Swan. Here they are very common and are to be found in every pond, canal or river.
Hope you are alright and enjoy your new home.
Regards, Roos

Bonjour Noushka,
Comme toi je suis toujours sous le charme. Peu-être parce que nous les voyons moins souvent sommes-nous si attentives et admiratives devant la grâce de leurs attitudes?
