Saturday Steps

Stand off with a swan on this one, Mmmm I backed down in the end. I've not got size on my side!
This was taken at middle pool, one of my local walks

Anyways right at this time, flat me is in space on the STS-133
I have put a post on Flat George's Travel Blog about it.
So pop over and take alook

See Yea George xxx

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Dat dere bird looks bigger den you. Good ting you backed off of dat one.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

That is SOME swan George! Good thinking to back off. teehee!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We saw that FG is going into outer space. congrats on your flight....oh, I guess you're still out there. Internet is wonderful.

We think our swans at the duck pond are babies, they aren't very big or territorial. Your swan looks big and cranky. Wise move backing off.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

George, you backed down from a swan?? Are they mean? I know that geese can be pretty mean, so maybe there was good reason. You are just too cute, George! You must stop by and see Bridger and Misty.

Maggie Mae and Max said...

I thinks you made da right decision, dat swan looks mean! :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Asta said...

Patrice said...

Watch yourself, dear. Those swans and geese can be quite nasty if they get a notion to be. It does look like a pretty place to visit though.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Good choice George. They can be lovely to watch and have bad tempers too if you mess with them! Love those steps! Love, Holly and mom

Wyatt said...

Watch out for those bird birds...Mean Mean Mean!!

Phew George, that was a close one!
Lots of love

J.E. Bolton said...

I love this photo. It should be entered into a contest or on a greeting card. TERRIFIC!

WFT Nobby said...

Wise move George. Even I steer clear of those great big white monster birds (mind you, the seagulls in Aberdeen are almost as big).
Toodle pip!

Kathy said...

There's no shame in backing down from a swan, George, they're mean, nasty birds who are always hissing! We don't like them!

GEOGE MI MAN!!! You are brave son, but in the end, you must be wise to back away from these feathered fools! Mi mum almost got GOOSED by a Canadian goose at our local zoo. THANK GOODNESS FOR THE QUICK THINKING OF DAD! She ran just in the nick of time to escape a sore bum!!! Off now to see FLAT GEORGE in space...I thought I saw an unusual object in the sky last night!!!! Anita and Balzac

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Smart move, George. Swans can turn rather nasty in the blink of an eye, crazy birds.


Molly the Airedale said...

Probably a good idea that you gave the swan his space, George!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Andi's English Attic said...

I think you were wise. Those swans can be scarey and dangerous. xx

Taryn said...

Wow! That is a HUGE bird. It makes you look little, George! I know that geese can be quite territorial/aggressive, so maybe swans are too! You made a wise move to back off.

Unknown said...

That's a beautiful place with the birds too but you're right, they are huge! Beware of them!

Pippen said...

George... you don't want to be messing with the swans! They don't like playing!

Sam and Pippen

Sherry said...

Even people who are bigger than swans back down when they encounter a swan on a mission. A terrier who acts sensibly is never discredited!
Miro (Sensible?)

houndstooth said...

I thought that was a swan! I hear they're not good to mess with.

Into space?! That FG really gets around!


Cranberry Morning said...

I hope you do get a good walk! And sure, I'd be happy to have you link back to my 'One For Sorrow, Two For Joy' post when you write about the Black Swan. If you do happen to go inside, I hope you can get a couple interior shots. Sure wish I had taken my camera the evening we ate there. Have a good weekend. :-)

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

You has to watch out for them swans, they is evil! One hissed at me once!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Teeeeheeee! Mi dad YACKS ALL THE TIME and all mum and I want to do is listen to the silence too! Mum can be sleeping and dad is yacking about politics and keeps me up! Oh son, I will be watching for the mailman...he likes me since I wag my short little tail for him! I am excited to see what you have comin'.....I know I will cherish it to you both dear friends, Balzac and mum

My Mind's Eye said...

Hugs madi

that looks like one totally intense stand off with that swan! i'm glad you are a-okay. my mama says those swans can be totally cranky pants...she got bit on the finger by one when she was a little girl. she gave a piece of bread to the swan, and then it got all piggie oink oink on her and wanted more! next thingie you know, *CHOMP*, and mama was cryin' with a hurt finger!
