Enjoying Nature's Beauties

Last weekend after I picked my son up from a friend's house we stopped by a nearby lake.  We took a little walk and encountered these beauties.  These Swans were so graceful and beautiful. 


                        Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
                          to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

These swans are just beautiful. They aren't something we see very often living in the desert :) Thank you so much for your well wishes for Jordan.
Enjoy your weekend!
Blessings,
Marcia

The swans are absolutely beautiful. I love the way they glide across the water. You got some great photos Marie. I love the third one from the bottom with the full reflection.

i am thinking that one swan in the middle was looking down his nose at the photographer. beautiful birds. and now i must sit and ponder WHO was driving to the pond where they reside. LOL. like i don't know that answer.

They are so lovely, and you got some good reflections, too! They can be very aggressive when defending themselves, though!

Well I do have to say that seeing the swans and ready your quote - putting them together - I feel seeing that beauty in nature makes me feel free.
