I wonder what would wind up with the mating of a black swan with a white one.

Hi Carole... Wonderful photo's of the these two beauties, and a beautiful setting to!!
Not always true from some people point of view, but I think the Cormorant is a interesting bird , almost prehistoric looking : )

Have a good weekend

The Black Swans are superb Carole. And Little Black Cormorant is great.

You have a lot of ground(or should that be water) to cover Carole. Love the Black Swans as a change from out white ones.

With us, you see a pair of black swans in the wild. Most are plain white. Other couples are usually black swans at petting zoos or private ponds in people.
