I already posted my photos for the WP Weekly Photo Challenge, but while organizing my photos archive, I could not resist and post these as well.
I would like to introduce you to my good neighbour Lino, a swan who lives with its family in the same canal where I live too (don’t get me wrong, he’s the only one of us floating there). When my daughter was a little kid, she gave this name to him. He’s a very cool swan, though perhaps looking a bit vain, ‘posing’ for this photo! I guess the swans family might be a bit disappointed with me, as I don’t feed them bread, contrary to what some of our (human) neighbors do.
This seagull looked so peaceful and relaxed. When I noticed that it didn’t move at all for so long, maybe it was meditating! Not funny, right? It made for a cute photo though…
The next one is a trouble maker kind of neighbor living also in the same canal as the swan (and me). This coot bird is always fighting and going after the ducks or swans’ food. It is nature’s way I know, but it is pretty annoying and selfish. He wants it all only for itself, just like some human beings do…
The prompt for this week’s WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat.
: borne on or as if on the water
: being at sea
: free of difficulties : self-sufficient <the inheritance kept them afloat for years>
: circulating about <nasty stories were afloat>
