Leda and the Swan

SwansPip is having a good holiday. He is a fan of swimming, and seems to handle the cold, fresh water as well as Sydney Harbour. This time he came up against something as big as a pelican that was quite interested in him, and in fact came up close to look.

After they moved off, Pip managed to get his swim.

One thought on “Leda and the Swan”

  1. Black swans are just one of the many unusual Australian animals. Before Australia was discovered, people thought that all swans were white. Then in 1697 (an anagram of 1976 when we lived in Canberra) they were first seen by Europeans when they explored the SWAN river in what in now Perth.

    Are the baby swans also black?
