swan black water

Swans are typically depicted in their more common white plumage, but this stunning black swan almost blends in with the dark surface beneath the rippling water. Swans are large birds, but are spectacularly elegant in form compared to their bulky size. This swan’s large, arched neck swoops over the water like a cane, and make the red-tinted bill at his front side all the more noticeable. The intricate pattern-work on this swan’s feathers, particularly those on his backside, is far more noticeable than it is on white swans since the bright color tends to drown out finer details like that. Swans often appear at their most natural when gliding along the water, and despite his less typical coloring, this swan fits into his habitat just like any other.
