Swan Lake


You may have admired the pair of black swans inhabiting the water basin underneath the Palau de l’Almudaina in Palma de Mallorca (see my blog entry dated January 18th, 2008). You may also have noticed that the black swans are no longer there. Some mishap occurred, perhaps even some mischief was committed, and one of the swans perished. The remaining single bird had to be removed from the estany due to love sickness.

Last summer, the water basin was emptied and cleaned, and in August, re-filled with water.

Now, about a month ago, a new pair of swans was taken to the Jardins de s’Hort del Rei, a pair of white swans this time. Both swans appeared happy in their new habitat the other day, or so it seemed to me.

Let’s hope no mischief will come their way this time.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 1st, 2009. The time was 13:26:28.
