Presenting….Bride Swan (Take 2)

Well, last week, some of you saw the “intro” for Bride Swan’s film debut when I prematurely published this post. There was a problem with the video, so I removed the post and saved it for a later date.  So, for those readers, the text here will be a rerun. But I’m leaving the text for those who haven’t already seen it.

Before you watch the video, there are a few things I should mention:

Bride Swan stretches her head back and makes a sound like a horse’s whinny when she wants me to give her more bread. If you listen carefully, you can hear her doing that in the video.

Although Bride Swan is able to eat dry bread, Groom Swan has difficulty doing that. So when he’s on land, I put water in a repurposed Cool Whip bowl for him, and, as I give him little bits of bread, he dips it in the water.  (Yes, he’s spoiled.) When I began filming Bride Swan, I had placed an open loaf of bread on the ground to my left. You’ll see Groom help himself to a WHOLE slice of bread and dip it in his water, as Bride Swan calmly watches and waits patiently for hers.

In the background, you’ll see our little group of ducks. They had already been fed corn, so, at this particular time, they weren’t interested in the swans’ bread.

I guess we now have two film stars…wonder how we’ll handle the egos.
