Daily Promt – The Black Swan

This is a exciting week, The Daily Post are providing a Daily Photo Challenge. Plenty of inspiration and excuses to post pictures…

Today’s (yesterday’s) challenge corresponds to that most holy day, Mother’s Day. A day for children to give back to their wonderful mother’s and say all those thank-you’s that don’t get said throughout the year.

So the challenge was to post a picture that says Mothering, and I don’t think I have seen anything more beautifully mothering, (and fathering), than these black swan’s and their tiny cygnet’s that I found last spring. They were such beautiful, enchanting, protective birds, letting me get close enough to take photo’s but no closer. DSCF1283  IMG_1491
