Watery Wednesday N:o 20

Even if snow and ice is the main picture over here at the moment there still is some places where the water flows freely. Lucky for some.

A picture story of one of our outings with the double trouble duo (only joking).

We came across a lonely cygnet...

Who comes and disturbs my peace?

Damn those humans. They have to come and trample all over the place.

What does my right eye see? More intruders!

Yummy! A big, fat bird steak swimming around.
Hey there! You ugly hairy thing on sticks!

Here is how I'm gonna scare you away.

In your dreams. I don't scare that easy.

Hey sis! What's going on here?
Look bruv, there's a fat steak swimming around.
I am not a steak you silly mutt. I am a majestic swan and I am dangerous too.

Ha! Like I would be frightened of a floating steak.
You will be!!!

Oops! Oh no I slipped.

Heeelp! I am slipping between the stones. Get me out of here!
Not so brave now, eh! Hiss hiss.

So the cygnet rules supreme once more over his rocky shore in the channel.

I wasn't scared. Honest! I just couldn't be bothered anymore.
Yup, yup! Of course you weren't my dear. Braveheart is your middle name.

So endeth this true story of an episode in a dog's life.

Not amused? Well perhaps you prefer to be cheered up by other watery picture stories from all over the world by visiting:

Hugely amusing, mainly because I know soooo many dogs just like that!

Thanks for the laugh!

ahahaa curious? or just being friendly? Great posts!

I'm sorry to say that neither is strictly speaking true. Don't think there were many exactly friendly thoughts going through Ljuba's head at that moment :)

You're welcome Mojo and thanks for your comment.

Lovely story, and oh, so true! I have never seen a brown cygnet before. Only grey ones. I will guess that it is a different species.


This was an amusing story - both in words and pictures! My dog would hide behind my legs.....:)
And swans are such majestic birds!

What a great post! I think it's pretty amazing that bird still sat there. Most of the water birds where I visit swim away from the edge the minute they even think something or someone is approaching. Great shots!
