Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Fort Wayne's Children's Zoo, Black Swan

I believe this is the black swan, the cygnus atratus, from Austrailia. A quick google search will tell you the black swan is 8 to 20 pounds, 43 to 56 inches long and the wing span is an impressive 5.3 to 6.5 feet!

You can see just how large this fowl is, when you compare him (her?) to the eastern grey kangaroo, who can grow to 6 foot tall.
