Either I’m starting to lose my mind or it’s the recent postings of white swans on FS Photography (here and here) that has me seeing swans in my flowers!! 🙂 

"Swan Song" (Clematis 'Lanuginosa Candida') Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro, F/6.3, 1/800s, ISO 200


  1. So pretty and I love the title – it does look like a swan!! 🙂

    • Damn, Melanie! I think you have THE fastest comment time, ever!! Thanks so much! 😀

  2. More like a unicorn to me!

    • Ah, so you noticed the horn….yeah, it is a very rare white swan indeed! 😉

  3. LOL… Is the the greater horned swan or the lesser crested swan !?!?!… You’re right though, I think you are losing your mind… but rest assured you’re not the only one, as I saw swans in my scrambled eggs this morning… I tell ya, that’s the last time I eat breakfast in the park… teehee… Thanks for the plug Tracy… 🙂

    • Ha! As Derrick pointed out, it is the rare White Unicorn Swan… only able to be photographed by those with pure hearts! 😉

      You’re welcome! (Do you think they ever found Dave?)

      • Lol… Last I heard he was still hiding behind a sheep…

  4. Nah, you’re definitely losing your mind. Old age does that to you, ya know? 😉
    Just kidding, I do see it, too (but then again… I’m not that much younger than you!)

    Happy Birthday 🙂

    • Ha! Thanks for the support, Michaela! 🙂

      Happy, Happy Birthday to ME!! 😀

  5. I vote for losing your mind! You are a year older….. 🙂

  6. I see a super unicorn with a white flying cape!

  7. No, wait. Not a unicorn. It’s an ostrich! Super Ostrich!

  8. I now see the Ostrich (may not be a Super Ostrich, still need to investigate). But I also love the “lightbulb” in the upper right corner!

    • Ha! Man, this is certainly turning into one crazy image or ALL of you have been drinking! 😀

      Thanks, babe! ♥ ♥

  9. LOL! Between you and Brian tonight, I’ve been having myself a good chuckle reading the comment sections of your blogs!

    Is it really your b-day? Hope it was happy!

    I do love your super-hero-horned-unicorn-swan clematis!

    • And who says photographers aren’t funny, right? Glad we could provide you some light entertainment! 🙂

      Yes, my birthday today! Had a lovely dinner (including bubbly – yay!) at one of our favorite restaurants. Then, there was cake (chocolate with white icing – yum!) and hubby got me binoculars! (double yay!) Now those male cardinals don’t stand a chance!

      ‘super-hero-horned-unicorn-swan clematis’ – priceless!! Thanks, Karma! 😀

  10. Is that Dave? No wonder all the swans are so lost on the isles. Dave is in New England. And Dave, well Dave is a unicorn. Go figure! That is the best swan flower I have ever seen. It’s a pretty good image overall to boot.

    • LOL! OMG – Dave was HERE all along! I should have guessed!!! Hilarious, Sean! 🙂

      Thanks so much for the comment and the bedtime chuckle!

      Nighty-nite! Don’t let the ‘super-unicorn-ostritch-swan-flowers-named-Dave’ bite! (‘cuz I hear Dave’s a biter… 😉 )

  11. COME BACK DAVE !!!… Bob is missing you… He reckons you’ve still got his book on Origami…

    • Dave likes it here. Bob can kiss his Origami book good-bye. 😉

  12. Happy belated birthday too btw… 🙂

  13. Oh wow! Oh wow oh wow!! Er… you can tell I like this, yeah?

  14. lol, you did manage to find a shape of a swan, love the shot 🙂

  15. I see the swan and like the first photo best. I guess it’s your b-day too so have a good one.

    • Then you, too, have a pure heart! 🙂

      Hey, no fair lumping comments (but I appreciate your playing!)

      Aw, thanks! I did and I’m enjoying ‘birthday weekend!’ 😀

  16. Super swan sighting Tracy.

  17. Oh wow, there IS a swan, a unicorn swan, in your flower. Nicely seen. This is super cool!

    • Thank you, Amber! If you didn’t guess already, the unicorn swans are the super coolest swans around. 😉

  18. Haha, you’ve got a photographic Rorschach Test going on here. I see snakes. Nice shot.

    • Thanks! How astute of you, Bob, to notice the snakes! They are the protectors of the rare super unicorn swan and come out whenever the giant blue-lightbulb makes an appearance… 😉

  19. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Yes, I saw people talking about your birthday. I’m such a smartie. LOL

    (Or such a dumbie, because you two could be joking).

    • Thank you, Babs! Yes, it was my birthday so that makes you a smartie! 😀

  20. geez, look at all these comments! lucky!

    yep, i see a hairy-necked, behorned swan. i also see cool lightbulb-shaped bokeh in the background, like the swan just had a really big, vague idea.

    • I feel lucky – thanks! 🙂

      Hmmm, ‘swam with a really big, vague idea’…..perhaps the swan isn’t Dave at all….methinks the swan is ‘Stephen’!… 😉

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. […] and discovered they were swans!  Not as impressive as Brian’s swans  or as playful as Tracy’s, but swans […]
