Swan 天鹅 ...


I think we all love to see
the elegance of a Swan's neck bending 
...
Did you know that a
"Swan neck" deformity
is a deformed position of the finger
with the nearest joint to the palm is bent away from it 
...

Swan poetry 咏鹅 ...

Un cygne c'est toujours très beau!
Mais deux, c'est le top!

Those birds can be very stupid but no matter what they do, they're always elegant.
