Juvenile Mute Swan, heads only (Cygnus olor)

It was a wet one, I'm going to grow my hair, a bit like Keiths, well, I used to have my hair as long as his. Ah, those were the days. Anyway, then, I'll be a merman.

  14. Look at this textured triangle above its beak - without the close up I wouldn't have noticed!

    About the merman Bob, be careful:

    ..."mermen are described as extremely ugly creatures with pointed green teeth, pig-like eyes, green hair, and a red nose"... :-)

  32. Handsome guy, or maybe gal! I happen to like a bit longer hair on men, but most in my life either have lost it, or shave it all off, or very short~

    ReplyDelete
  33. If your weather outside is frightful,
    long hair is most delightful.
    There's only one way to go..
    Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow.

  34. WOW!!! Amazing close-ups Bob.

    ReplyDelete
  35. wow, what detail!! fantastic close-ups!!

    a MUTE swan?!! does that mean they don't speak?

    long hair's nice...but the shorter hair or no hair is much easier to take care of! (especially when it's HOT!)

  36. Another vote for short hair, I always used to wear my long and then after days (weeks, months) of photographing in Florida's extreme heat & humidity I whacked mine off and haven't let it grow long again because it is so easy to take care of.

    I love these close up, intimate images.
