"The current pair of swans are mute swans named Romeo and Juliet after the Shakespearian couple, however, it was found that both are female."

Just good friends then Bev
Beverly Andrighetti: Perhaps a little more than that, Chris. (See Ginnie's comment)
It is like swan Monday what with you and Janet Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Haha. Separated by an ocean but on the same wavelength, Chad.

Just the other day Astrid was Googling homosexuality in the animal kingdom and discovered there are more than 1500 species who display such behavior. I wonder if this is one such situation, Beverly? Very interesting stuff, isn't it!
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes. It is a natural occurrence, Ginnie, and is finally being recognized as such. This contented pair have made a cozy nest together near the edge of the lake and are surrounded by a host of noisy neighbours. Don't know how Juliette could sleep through all that racket. She didn't move a feather all the time we were there.
lovely collage
Beverly Andrighetti: Glad you like it, Chantal. Thank you.
I spent lots of time here decades ago. I like the ducks best.
Beverly Andrighetti: The ducks are great, Mary. It is a beautiful place; glad to hear you got to spend time there.
Well I never. They look very content.
Beverly Andrighetti: Content is the very word I would use, Bill.

Now they have to rewrite the play... Juliet and Juliet... and they lived happily ever after.
This is amazing. I wonder if the eggs will carry small swans then?
Nice compilation, Beverly!
I love your collage Beverly - each photo is so gorgeous on it's own! Maybe they're sisters?
