Swans at Swan River

When I am not surfing on weekends I often go for a ride around the river with a few mates and yesterday I decided to throw my camera in the backpack fro something different.

I ended up at the Como Sea Scouts at sunrise and just up from there were these black swans. When I sat down the most bizzar occurrence happened. All the Swans came up to me within a metre and then promptly proceeded to tuck their heads in between their wings and go to sleep! I don’t normally have that effect on animals!

It is really cool being so close to wildlife in their surroundings and being included in their day to day activities.

  1. Yep. You normally only have that effect on people right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just joking. Nice shot of the swans mate. I think its awesome that they have managed to get these birds living out on the river again.

  2. Swan on Swan ah, Are your they were asleep, maybe they were a bit camera shy ? Nice picture by the way.

  3. I like this one Mark – very cool, are you ‘ the swan whisperer’ ? ๐Ÿ˜‰
