What a beauty; they are such stately birds. I never get tired of looking at them.

They are such an elegant bird, no wonder they strut like that!

I agree, we had one at the pond today. A white one. We get a huge grey one too at times!

Karen Thomason/Gordon Setter Crossing said...

Pretty indeed. I'd love to see his dance when he is courting a female. I wonder if they wrap their necks together like giraffes do? I bet it's a site to see. Maybe you could catch THAT scene sometime! It IS spring.

A Rural Journal said...

Long graceful necks they have -- I would love to see one up close! :)

Millie said...

Beautiful in white! Of course it would be better with some horns.

Sharon said...

Do you only have the one, T? It would be nice to have a mated pair, wouldn't that be cool?
