On a very chilly Fall day my friend and I were out on a photoshoot. Our destination was the famous carousel not far from the house. After we shot a million pics at the carousel we went for a walk in the park across the street. On our way down the stairs to the little stretch of beach on Narragansett Bay, I saw this guy preening away, oblivious to us. It looked like he was covered in something yucky, not sure what.
He looked footless in the mucky sand! I got closer to see if perhaps we needed to call wildlife to do a well check on him.
I think this may have been his way to tell me he was fine, just doing swan things.
Along comes this pretty gal to check him out. It may even be his significant other, who knows.
She's just scoping the situation.
He showed no interest. He just continued with his obsessive preening.
Little missy got closer, but still no reaction from sticky feathers.
He finally looked up!
Ah, too late little guy.
And once again he was back to his preening, alone.
I think she'll be back.
Happy Animal Wednesday!
It's around 2 degrees here today. My fingers are blue!
Why did I leave CA?????
