OMG Guy! You're really Yank-in-Dixie???
LOLOL, I don't think you even knew Panoramio existed in 2007! (but you know me well enough now to know you're not about to get by with a comment like that!) Thanks for finally commenting on the shot :)
Thanks very much for that brezza and ravellan ! LOL, If only the little swan had had any idea how many people would get to see him being happy that day 2 years ago!
Lol when I made that comment there were none before the 31st. They have reappeared.
LOL, beware the disappearing and re-appearing comments!
Really wonderful, le cigne dans tout cet or!
Thanks very much Mimmi Cassola !
Hi Ospr3y - Thanks! and hey - there's one of you who likes to hang around the lake, too. But I haven't been able to get a postable shot of our osprey (...yet!)
Yep, should've gone in the NPC with this one.
lololol, Guy, well, how was I to know that a swan standing just beating its wings to stretch, not even thinking of flying, would come in second under the theme of 'to fly' ? but, this little guy gets plenty of attention already, so I doubt his feelings are hurt (though who knows, maybe he's even the swan I submitted!)
Very nice photo!

Thanks very much ribene !
LOLOL. I just was checking photos in GE, and clicked on this one. Looks like they've now added the 'Sponsored Links' (aka Advertisements) to older photos. Well, the joke is sort of on them. Used to have this titled 'It's Great to be a Swan on Hawn Pawn'...so the two linked ads are for.....Pawn Shops!!! How ridiculous! OK, I've changed my title.
Sponsored links? I don't see any. But it's a bad sign. It means Pano needs the money. Or someone thinks it's a way to make money.
Hi Nawitka - it was in Google Earth, when the blue square for this shot is clicked, not Pan. And right about when they started including little ads in GE links to our photos, Google was publicly having financial problems. BUT I also just realized....the first time I saw the ads on my shots, I had just downloaded the new Google Earth Update!!!! Wow. I wonder if the ads are included in the update. I'd downloaded it because I'd heard GE had updated the maps for the area where I go skiing in Idaho/Wyoming. But ironically, that area still wasn't updated in the 'free' version of GE.
Swan's action in this is lovely Kamaly, great capture!!!
Best wishes, ♪
Thanks very much Silver Moon! After I posted this, I really did read somewhere that they stand and beat their wings when they're happy!
and :D who ! He's REALLY glad to be a swan on Honn Ponn now, and not a bird who might be sold off at Hawn Pawn!
Having grown up in Worburn i love the spelling. For those in the rest of the world the real name is Horn Pond but the Bostonian accent makes it Hawn Pown.
