Mr. and Mrs. Swan!
Finding these beautiful creatures out here was really a surprise. The lake is still half frozen and they are just sitting on ice. Bizarre situation, but they are utterly beautiful creatures.
If I had to get another tattoo I would get a swan. I already have a deer on my wrist (and no it is not Bambi). For some reason I have always felt a connection with both of these animals, must be that we all have really absurdly long necks. Come to think of it, my favorite safari animal would be a giraffe. Ha!

In college, I was a Spanish major. In my literature class we had to read El Cisne (or in English The Swan) by Ruben Dario. It has remained one of my favorite poems. Here is an excerpt below in Spanish and English.
Fue en una hora divina para el género humano.
El Cisne antes cantaba sólo para morir.
Cuando se oyó el acento del Cisne wagneriano
Fué en medio de una aurora, fué para revivir...
It was in a divine hour for mankind.
The swan previously sang only to die.
When the people heard the sound of the Wagnerian Swan
it was in the middle of an aurora, it was in order to revive.
