ABC Wednesday: E is for elegant

E is for elegant and I think swans have an elegant beauty.

Swans also have elongated necks.

I tried to find a shot I'd taken of swans with bubbling water to use for effervescent but the water was very still in all the shots I could find with a quick look.

They also like to eat, and don't have very good etiquette. Rather grabby, in fact. :)

Oh I quite agree with all of your adjectives. What a wonderful creation.

Oh, lovely shots! I rarely get a close up look at swans in my corner of the world, so your photos were much enjoyed...:)

Swans are indeed elegant and I could imagine the effervescent photo, even though you didn't find it. I'm hoping the swans in your part of the world are not pinioned, as ours are at Stanley Park in Vancouver.

Swans are certainly among the most elegant of creatures. I'm always reminded of "The Ugly Duckling" story.

I hold swans in high Esteem, and agree that they are the Epitome of Elegance! Though you'd wished for Effervescence, I think the tranquility of this water adds to the Elegance of your beautiful photos. I Especially Enjoyed the first one - so beautiful!

I love to watch swans take off and land in water....they just don't look as graceful as they do swimming serenely...great pix
