Weekly Photo Challenge – One Love


One Love

This week’s WordPress challenge got MB thinking of the two swans that frequent the Lough Gur lake-front back home. During MB’s Christmas break, they seemed to be inseparable.

MB saw them again during his trip home of recent days when they seemed to be having some ‘alone time’. Maybe she just had a headache. But at the end of the day, who the hell knows what goes on with swans.

From Wikipedia:
Swans usually mate for life, though “divorce” does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure, and if a mate dies, the remaining swan will take up with another.

MB went out for an early morning walk around the local Lough Gur lake on his first morning back home yesterday, circa 8am. A pair of duck flew over MB’s head, flying in harmony, and in harmony with the world about them.
Herewith, the harmonious ducks flying over MB’s head:
