One Word Photo Challenge; Black

Recently I posted a picture of a black swan for one of Cee’s photo challenges that I  came across in Esher, near where I live.  Then I found out that the Black Swans are actually native to Australia, so when I went there I was thrilled to find some;

Thank you Cee for this week’s Challenge 🙂

Oops!  This one’s NOT a Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge!!  This one belongs to Jennifer!!  Apologies Jennifer 🙂  ( Sorry, it must be too confusing having two similar challenges on the same day for my little brain!)

  1. Thanks for sharing Barbara! Such a beautiful Swan- I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a black swan in person before.
    And no worries, Cee is lovely and I love her challenge as well (and Cee, if you’re reading this, I hope I’m not stepping on any toes by offering a similar challenge- I really thought nothing of it ’til quite a few people got our challenges confused 🙂 )

      I’m very glad i’m not the only one getting confused!!! 🙂

      I love having lots of photo challenges, it enables me to share lots of my photos that otherwise might not have appeared, so PLEASE don’t stop!! xx


      • haha no, there have been many. I participate in Cee’s challenges from time to time as well- I’ve just been so busy I haven’t been keeping up with them weekly. But hosting my own challenge has been quite fun- I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement.

    That black swan looks like s/he had a home perm! 😆 I am more used to our white version with smooth feathers.
