Random Five Friday

The last Random Five Friday before Christmas. Has the year gone by as quickly for you as it has for me?  –sigh-  Here’s a little randomness:

1.) The juvenile mute swan visited again earlier this week.  And, along with her this time was Bride Swan.  If the younger one is going to be a regular here, I guess I need to name him/her.  And I’m hoping he/she learns some manners soon: he/she wasn’t sharing the bread too well that day with Bride Swan. And perhaps I need to research whether it’s possible to determine swan gender?

2.) Also visiting this week was my niece and her son, Jase.  Have I mentioned that he’s my great great nephew? And we took a selfie!

 5.) And the seemingly obligatory Friday marina photo – taken before sunrise on Monday.

Happy weekend! Will it be a relaxing one for you or hectic with last minute preparations?

  1. Nice bunch of randomness! Love that last photo – the marina looks so serene and beautiful…….Happy Friday! Things are quiet here which makes me happy.


  2. Hmmm, hope Groom swan doesn’t get his beak out of joint since Bride swan was visiting with the mute swan. I doubt if you could tell the gender of swans without a very close exam! But Wikipedia states that black swans and white swans can’t interbreed so it might be true of the mute swan, too.

  3. Boy, Sundae sure is giving that bird the eye. 🙂 Beautiful photos, Dianna!

  4. Beautiful pics, especially through the window at Sundae’s visitor. Peaceful early morning shot with the water like glass and full of reflections.

  5. Definitely leaning more towards hectic this weekend. The marina shot is particularly beautiful to me this morning. Have a nice weekend, Dianna.

  6. Looks like a week of fun visits from that sweet little fellow to the big round fellow with a white beard to Sundae’s visitor. I wonder how long Sundae watched that birdie?

  7. I love your new Swan. Does he/she have a name yet? Do you know where it comes from? Is Groom swan still visiting? So many questions I have!

  8. That pigture of Sundae is so sweet!


  9. I agree with Pam.. last photo is beautiful! No hectic here.. family Christmas on Sunday and all is done.

  10. Another great collection for R5F !
    I like the muted swan, but I hope he/she learns some manners…
