In Felicity Dale's book The Black Swan Effect she states 'the term 'black swan' was common in 16th century London, everyone knew swans were white and black swans presumably did not exist, so the term came to mean something farfetched, not real. However, in 1636 a Dutch explorer discovered nomadic, red-billed black swans in Western Australia. All of a sudden, black swans were no longer an impossibility, and the meaning of the term changed from something farfetched to something once thought of as farfetched, but now known as reality'. WA, unique even way back then :)
The black swan here was so close to shore it didn't have to
dip too deep to find a tasty morsel of algae..
Not surprisingly when he came up a winner, he was surrounded by 'well wishers' :) Bon weekend, have fun.. take care and stay safe...
