Great catch, Patty! Very seldom I've seen them together! Wonderful effects and great composition! #188256

Beautiful, Patty! Very graceful, very elegant composition!! I absolutely love this shot! #908507

Thank you so much! I was surprised to see that I have captured the koi swimming around the swan. There were a bunch swimming to one corner feasting and I think this particular swan was expecting me to feed it while I was trying to get it swim farther away from me :-)
Mahalo & Aloha!

This swan only understands pidgin, Patty (LOL!), or maybe it's mute, or maybe it just thought you were the feeder!! Nice shot anyway with the three golden koi alongside!!
Aloha no,

LOL!!! I don't speak bird pidgin but I can do 'da Hawaiian pidgin and I think the swan would mute me out anyway!
Thanks a bunch! :-) #909796

Patty, this is a wonderful image!
So unusual to see the swan and koi's swimming together in harmony. Although, it makes sense in a Hawaiian or Japanese type garden.

Congratulations on making the finalist!
Best wishes on the next round! #981331
