Swans at Karekare

The synchronized swimming of swans is a thing of beauty and elegance. Seen in the wetlands near Karekare Beach.

  2. It’s simply beautiful – so elegant and peaceful!

  3. Beautiful black swans, perfectly posed. Are these wild or permanent residents? I have never seen a wild swan. Maybe they avoid Oklahoma.

  4. @Tulsa Gentleman These swans are free to come and go as they please, and are ‘wild’. My bird book says that “Black Swans in New Zealand are moderately sedentary”, so I guess they might not travel too far. Swans flying ‘long distance’ are a rare sight for me, but it has happened. Large numbers of swans – as in thousands of birds – are found at Farewell Spit (top of South Island).

  5. In black, it’s simply perfect !

  6. Between those brackets must be all the beauty of this world, that you are so good at catching and sharing… Nice work.

  7. where can you get a better photo than this?

    I must drop by Western Spring after work to see if the babies are hatched.

  8. Perfection in beauty and grace.

  9. You captured this photo at a great time!

  10. Indeed, immaculate timing. Stunning capture. Like it a lot.
