Amazing. The way you've caught them in the midst of transformation reminds me of Bernini's Apollo and Daphne.

Also amazing. Can't decide which of your "Six Swans" pics I like better, now. Glad I don't have to choose!

Oh and did you know that you can change a deviation file by clicking edit? That way you do not have to delete the old one and lose all the faves and comments.
