Water Standing on a Swan

by Larry Nelson March. 11, 2010 2852 views

When this swan ducks its head under the water, the water droplets form on the feathers, but do not get the swan wet! Not sure I know how that works!!

Looks better enlarged . . .

These swans were camera hogs! Some of the most fun I've had taking animal pictures...good capture of the beads of water...
