…Eating Out Of The Palm Of My Hand

No, not Motor Man.  Groom Swan. Last week, I shared this photo:

If he’s around when I’m in the yard, he’s interested in what I’m doing. and follows me around like a puppy.  On this particular day, I had opened the garage door, went back in to do something, and there he was: waiting for me.

Motor Man was in the house, so I called him on my cell phone and had him come take pictures.

I was trying to get Groom Swan to take bread from my hand. He’s done that a time or two in the past.

After much coaxing, he did.  But he was so quick about it,  it resulted in a blurred picture.

We’ll keep practicing.

  1. Great photos…..I love that he’s so trusting (and hungry) that he’ll come right up to you – he’s SO gorgeous too!!


  2. I told you-animals know who to trust-and with your gentle kind nature, I figure he will be at the dinner table with you and Motor Man soon! Great pictures.

  3. Soon he’ll be joining you at the dining room table! Great photos!

  4. Groom Swan knows love when he sees it. 🙂

  5. Awwww! That is a huge bird!!! I love his feet too and those ruffled tail feathers!

  6. Blurred or not, just having him eat from your hand is quite an accomplishment. And to get a picture is great!

  7. Ohhhh this is amazing! Groom Swan obviously knows a good person when he sees one! 🙂

  8. I don’t think swans warm up to people easily so this is quite an accomplishment. He’ll probably move in by Christmas.

    How neat is that ? I stopped by the feed store yesterday and got some cracked corn for my geese at City Park. They know me and my horn.

  12. What a wonderful gift he’s given you. I think he’s become a handsome new member of your family.

  13. He’s so cool… I think that picture is good even though it’s blurred – it just shows how fast he is !!

  14. So sweet!
