I don't know what it is but there's something about this picture I love it could be how the girls is my age and living the dream or how happy she is I don't really know what but this picture makes me happy. :)

Anna Pavlova + her pet swan Jack, 1905

  • Dave Holly

    That photo was taken right before the swan grabbed her nose! :)

  • Barbara Wolfe

    They are nasty birds; he had to have been drugged or dead to be this docile.

  • Christine Kumer

    Her arm is holding the swan's neck so he cannot move. They are not nasty, humans just need to leave them be! People can be so mean to them, that's why they will hiss and snap at you.
