Most beautiful birds. Swan

Swan. Most beautiful birds

It’s not easy to tell what the most beautiful birds are, as they are all amazing and beautiful creatures. For me, the most beautiful bird is swan. According to zoologists, the Northern Hemisphere species of swan have pure white plumage but the Southern Hemisphere species are mixed black and white. And the Australian Black Swan is completely black except for the white flight feathers on its wings. Meanwhile, the chicks of black swans are light grey in color, and the South American Black-necked Swan has a black neck. Noteworthy, swans usually mate for life, though ‘divorce’ does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure. And the number of eggs in each clutch ranges from three to eight.

Lake Kaindy mysterious and beautiful lake in Kazakhstan
These photographs feature Kaindy Lake, probably the most beautiful spot in Kazakhstan. Located 2,000 meters above sea level, 400 meter-long lake reaches depths 30 meters. What makes this lake truly remarkable are the tall, dried-out trunks of submerged Schrenk’s Spruce trees. Beautiful trees rise above the water’s surface from the bottom of the lake. Meanwhile, in the winter months, Kaindy freezes over. The freezing waters attract ice divers captivated by the sight of tree trunks encased in a sheet of ice and the strange beauty of the underwater world hidden beneath. And during the summer, Kaindy could hardly offer a more contrasting picture, its waters have a warm shade of green and turquoise.

Oak forest planted in memory of beloved wife
When in 1995 a resident of the UK Janet Howes died of heart disease, her husband, Winston Howes planted thousands of oak seedlings in memory of her. In particular, the farmer planted thousands of oak saplings in a six-acre field. In addition, he left a heart-shaped area in the middle, with the point facing towards his wife’s childhood home. Meanwhile, after 17 years in this place there was the oak grove with a symbol of love in the shape of the heart. The couple lived happily married for 33 years. In fact, the farmer’s memorial was revealed in all its glory after keen hot air balloonist Andy Collett, 42, from nearby Wotton-Under-Edge, flew over the wood last week.
