Thanks, Alan! Its funny: I took this last summer, and didn't think it was worth uploading! I have no idea why. Cheers!

Such a peaceful photo, and the colours and reflections are fantastic. Just love it, could see it up on my wall. Great shot, Dianne

Thanks very much, diannemcd ! You'll probably laugh: When I took this, I had so many sunset and so many swans posted on my other page that I didn't think this was worth posting. So it languished on my computer for many many months. (This page isn't supposed to be for stuff like this!)

Very, very beautiful. Who cares this page wasn't supposed to stuff like this! Congratulations and Y*. Greetings from Toulouse, Miguel

Is this for real?

Well done!

Greetings and best regards.

Hi Erwin - Thanks! Yes, it's very much for real! There are several swans at this lake that love to pose, and it has great sunsets and gets very mirror-like often. But I've never been there any time since that had all three events at the same time, so I'm glad I had the chance for this shot. Cheers from Massachusetts :)

Thanks Dianne! I'd wondered how you'd found this, then noticed the link to I made on another photo. Believe it or not, this got relegated to the Bits page long after it was taken because I felt I had too many sunsets, too many swans, and too many Horn Pond photos on Kamaly! I also kick myself because I got about 100 shots of the swan in different poses, and back in those days I'd go through and delete all the shots I didn't consider the pick of the litter. So now I wonder what I threw away...

(and ha-ha, looks like you liked this on 08-08-08, too! ;) and even more, I just noticed I gave almost the same comment then, too! LOLOL, I'll leave it. Isn't it nice to have our memories falter as we get older? We can get the thrill of finding something new sooo much more often than before!)

Aww bless these poor conjoined swans, must be hard being that one of them always has to hold it's breath. Says prayer for the swans. Beautiful sunset, reflection & birdie! So cute! Looks like it's praying for you, lol or maybe that's a swan curtsey. I dunno, I've never seen one curtsey before... seen em curse but no curtsies. Really well done!

Happy Greetings from Ontario, GG =)

Hi Steven James - Thanks very much for the Favorite and the Like!

Hi Dianne! Thanks! the hilarious thing: I'd gotten so many sunsets around the same time as this that I didn't feel any of the photos I took of this swan and its mate with the sunset and mirror reflections were even worth posting. LOL: I deleted the majority of the shots!!! And that also explains why it got posted to my page, lol. Someone regrets her blindness!

Thanks very much Helvetica!
