I took this picture in Whitehall with my friend Lisa. The swans were off in the distance but Lisa managed to score some bread from someone on a docked boat and bribed the swans over to us. The funny thing is that once they were right up to where we were she kept warning me, “I didn’t know they would get this close! Don’t let the dad get too close! I mean it Ann, he’s getting awful close, see how he’s looking at you. Oh! I’m not kidding you, watch it!!!” Apparently Lisa was attacked by a goose a while back and it was not a good experience for her due to the 7 foot wingspan and bruises it inflicted.
Aren’t they pretty though?
