Saturday Snapshot No. 1



A swan on the river running through Stratford, Ontario, the home of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Canada. We attend a play or two at the festival almost every year on our way to or from Toronto. This picture was taken last year.

Visit Alyce at At Home With Books to join in the Saturday Snapshot and post your picture on the linky there.

I've been wanting to watch swans on the lake or in a pond...maybe it's time to walk the few short miles to our neighborhood park! Thanks for the gorgeous swan.

Beautiful swan! We sometimes get them here on Lake Ontario but I can't get close enough to get a good picture.

What a beautiful swan. I nearly used some swan photos today too (but our black Australian swans).

I have only seen swans at the zoo until this past fall when several swans visited our neighbor's tank. It was such a treat to sit and watch these elegant birds.

The swan is so graceful -- lovely shot.

Bookzilla said...

A Shakespeare festival, how exciting! Post pictures of that next time. :)

The swan is lovely. I like how you can see the water churning and rippling around him/her.

Here's my Saturday Snapshot!

I like how graceful and serene the swan is but you can see the bubbling of the water which tells you it is paddling like mad under the surface!

You sure make me want to take a trip!

Alyce said...

To me swans just seem appropriate for a Shakespeare festival, and that one is so pretty!

Lisa said...

I love swans! The first time I ever saw them close-up was by the shores of Loch Lomond in Scotland.
