The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Dave… DAVE !!!… Has anyone seen Dave ???…

Well if you wanted swans… then here are some swans… and no, this is NOT a clever photoshop manipulation, there actually were hundreds upon hundreds of swans…. Approx 600 to be precise…

This is a shot from Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset, where believe it or not ALL of the swans are wild and free to come and go as they please… but I guess due to the expanse of open water and the abundance of carefully protected nesting areas, and most likely the free food… then why would they choose to go live anywhere else… I know I wouldn’t…. But it sure was a sight to see… and hear… lol…

  1. LOL! LOVE the title AND the image! Good god, man! I cannot even begin to imagine THAT amount of swans! What a fun puzzle they would make!!

    The two touching beaks in the lower left are precious!

    • Yeah I always thought it would make a pretty good puzzle too… Seriously though, this shot only hints at the amount of swans… My lens at the time just wasn’t wide enough… Thanks Tracy… :)

  2. The image is awesome. The title brings it over the top. I would buy this as a puzzle, it’s a great one. 5k pieces. :) Heck, it even has the swan “heart” in the bottom left corner.

    • Cheers Sean… I’m pretty sure it would drive me insane though, but I guess some of the more sadistic puzzle enthusiasts would love it…

    Fantastic title and a great shot. :) It reminds me a little of an Escher birds sketch.

    • LOL… Yeah I guess it could have that Escher look… Maybe I should have done some photoshop manipulation after all… Maybe an idea for the future… :)
