27 November 2006 Coleen Perilloux Landry

Bayou St. John in New Orleans

The only swan left in City Park after Katrina no longer cares to live in City Park but has moved across the way into Bayou St. John because of the alligators. The governor of Louisiana promised me she would have the alligators taken out of City Park but so far "promises are promises."

other sizes: small medium original auto

Swans are top of the food chain on our river, but then fortunately we don't have alligators. I bet he/she would like company though - very sad

Excellent capture Coleen, can't say I blame the poor thing.

Nice portrait ~ sad to see your politicians are like the Canadian ones.. .full of hot air and empty promises

A beautiful shot, so nicely isolated from the surrounding area. And from the alligators!

The swan must have more sense than the governor heheh

Great shot! Vote.

Nice swan shot Coleen. I believe there are alligators close to Christian Brothers School. When my boys were there, falling in the lagoon was a regular occurance.

What a breautiful Mute Swan Coleen. I sure hope the governor is true to her word!
Donnaray28-Nov-2006 01:27
The swan looks as though it knows not to wait on the governor, great image.

So sorry for the broken promises! But a lovely capture Coleen! Vote!
Guest 28-Nov-2006 01:18
Somehow, I'll bet she will hear about this again!

A sad legacy...but beautiful photo Coleen!

At least she's a survivor! Let us know if we can write some letters or something. V

Very nice detail and control of the light.
J. Scott Coile27-Nov-2006 23:50
More empty promises :(
Cindi Smith27-Nov-2006 23:50
Yep, promises, promises. Politicians can't seem to get the ball rolling. Beautiful capture of this swan. She looks very lonely! V

Poor little thing.
petesie27-Nov-2006 22:29
Another frustration and another wonderful image. I'm reading a book in which swans play an important part....I think of you with every page turn!

Very handsome swan.
