How absolutely adorable are these cygnets! How could they ever be called "ugly ducklings"?

Thank Ron You made my day!

Awww.. now isn't that a lovely picture. I think she has Seven little ones...beautiful birds.

We should Never feed water birds, they should find their own food.
But I suspect it's nice seeing children with mum and dad feeding them.

Keep together now ....I'm looking for 'summat t'eat '......don't know where your father's gone!
Every picture tells a tale....!

Ive heard that its OK to feed them wholemeal bread.
Its the white muck that most Wiganers eat thats no good for them

I can just see Mother Duck, I mean swan,sorting out the wheat from the chaff!

It is very comforting to see this kind of photo,simply nature at its best. When you consider the unbelievable insanity going on in the world today, and then you see a photo like this, it just demonstrates how completely out of sync with harmony, we really are.
A simply terrific photo Ron, Thanks.

Syd do you know if that mother swan gets hungry she will eat one of them cygnets.
So I will stick to being out of sync with harmony and use the supermarket when Im feeling peckish.

Maureen, until I read your comment,i hadn't noticed the seventh beak!

Comment by: Maureen on 17th June 2017 at 23:02

Ellen I'd I only just noticed it myself.

Comment by: Syd on 18th June 2017 at 12:41

Mick, your comment is absolute rubbish,it is obviously a comment to justify your own sick thinking. Why do you post comments such as this? You need to have a damn good look at your self!

Comment by: Ellen on 18th June 2017 at 18:33

Agreed Syd!
