So sweet! I love how all the dogs seem so curious yet apprehensive of the huge swan. :)

I love the way you caught the swan's wings fluffed out and of course the "attentive" dogs!

A funny scenery! a lot of stories could be written from this picture..You speak of the animals, but what about this woman? If the three dogs begin to run to catch the swan, she will have some bad moments...Ü

I like this meeting of the swan with dogs, and the indifferent collie ...
Thank you, wonderful!

Swan meets dogs and the dogs are not barking nor is the swan attacking the dogs. That must be the beginning friendship! Great pic.

So a beautiful swan and an uninterested collie, this is strange. Really a great image of a meeting of bird, dogs and a pretty human.

I love the tension between swan and dogs and human and the leash of the collie resting softly on the bench. Fantastic contrast.

Love it! I'm so glad you caught this funny, wonderful scene! Love how the swan seems to be preening and taunting the three dogs who can't get to it. And I wonder what collie-dear is staring at so intently the other way. Oh to know a writer who can make a story out of this!

The swan is so pretty! I love the way the dogs are being so cautious.

The swan seems to be showing off with its opened wings!!

Does swan lift its wings up to warn the dogs?
