St. James's Park: Backlit Bird & Blossom Offering
More flair for the landing flare in large.
Ross'sling with "festive smudge" (as my mother described it)
"Drink and be merry" = Smiling black cygnet
Green and red is festive, right?
Mum and I went to St. James's Park for coffee with the birds... We visited the Ross'sling and its family (mostly being snoozy by the lake's edge, but we did see that the Ross'sling was sporting an unusual festive look), went to see the sweet black cygnet, and pottered around the lake in the morning sunshine. We had coffee with the cygnet, and came across people trying to tempt the parakeets away from the cherry blossom that they were picking at...
I couldn't chose between the Ross'sling and black cygnet, so went with a parakeet shot instead.
