Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the better versions.
As we travelled east roughly following the Murray River we came to the Wakool River lined with old dead River Red Gums. Swimming along the river was a black swan, an iconic Australia water bird (see a closer photo of the swan in the WS).
Elsewhere in the world swans are white but many black swans have been taken to other countries for zoos with some escaping and establishing themselves in the wild. I saw some living in El Retiro Park in Madrid. There are good numbers elsewhere in Europe, especially in England and also in China, Japan and New Zealand.
