black swans and cygnets

It's been almost a year since I hurt my back and I'm finally getting back to as-normal-as-possible and able to get around pretty well. So, Hubby suggested a walk to Nowell's Lakes (well, one of them) and we were pleasantly surprised by several black swans and this bevy of cygnets.

A lovely pic Betty. Our Swan River in Perth is named after the black swans which inhabited the river when the early settlers arrived.

An interesting blog. Beautiful pictures, beautiful views. So far I only knew New Zalandię of movies "Lord of the Rings". I think that your blog will allow me to get to know this beautiful country better.
Feel also free time for me, the Polish, the New Sacz.
Yours. :)

What a beautiful scene, and I am so glad that your back is well enough for you to be out and about.

Oh I love the cygnets. I took pictures of some black swans in Florida last year at one of the lakes and learned that they had (originally) been imported from NZ or Australia. They are beautiful.

Glad you're back to being able to take nature walks.
