Day 995, Black Beauties

I am sure I’d not find anyone who would disagree on the grace and beauty of black swans.

There was once a time when I thought that swans were white until as a small child I came across a postage stamp in my mum’s stamp collection.
This 1954 commemorative stamp was adorned with a black swan to commemorate Western Australia’s first stamp in 1854, the one penny black swan.

Since that childhood revelation, to me the black swan is not only a creature of grace and beauty but also one of mystery and discovery.

  1. Thank you for sharing all of your great photography/art. I truly never knew there were really black swans! So incredibly gorgeous.

    1. We take so much for granted it almost comes as surprise to share something that’s new to others! 🙂
