At long last!!!

At long last I got a few shots of some swans that I am proud to say I took....oh, they could probably be better but they sure beat anything I have taken to this date.
This pair of Mute Swans have been on this strip pit the past few times I have been out there. This pond is maybe a quarter mile from the highway...and they are the first thing I see usually that really captures my attention.
***************
I feel like a broken record...but been going through more sickness. Roger went from the rash, to a really, really bad flu/cold cruddy thing. Then about the time he was starting to feel a tiny bit better, the rash he had before that started returning...so it was back to the doctor today for more steroids....we cannot think of anything new he has come in contact with or anything new he has been eating to cause it. It has not gotten near as bad this time...but then it had not had as much time. But he was miserable anyway...so hopefully this time around will be the end of it. And maybe I will get back in the swing of blogging.

I have things scheduled for my Time Stand Still blog, but I use this one part of the time just to chronicle what is currently happening, so I usually do it 'fresh'.....

Love swans! We have a white one and black one that visit us frequently. They've been the subjects of quite a few of my blog posts!

So elegant.

Oh man Rose, they are beautiful! I love that bottom photo.
I'm sorry to hear Roger is feeling poorly again...Keeping you all in my prayers.

You got some fantastic shots there! They're SO lovely!

I'm terribly sorry your husband's rash is coming back. That was so scary the first time... Get well wishes sent to both of you...

Oh Rose, I'm so sorry... what could the rash be? Has he taken a ZPack from the doctor for a cold? I know that caused me to break out in a rash several years ago... had an allergic reaction to it & can't take it - that was the 1st & last time I ever took it! It was awfully yucky...

Your swans are GORGEOUS... so elegant! =)

the Swans are really beautiful aren't they. We have Trumpeter Swan out here. They have black beaks and legs and love to gobble in the mud.

I hope everyone gets better soon. It can be so miserable to feel icky all the time. MB

You did a good job with these photos! They're so striking with their black masks. I like to know why things are happening to me and we don't always get answers, of course. I sure hope the rash clears up or someone figures out the cause so it will go away. Good luck and best wishes for Roger!

I really like the last one Rose!
I don't think we even have any swans at the park. :(
Sure hope Roger can find out what's causing his rash.
