The mute swan on the front of this eco-friendly greeting card was encountered on a gentle stroll along the shore of Grasmere in the Lake District National Park.
What I found particularly striking was the “handful of facial features that embellish this beau idéal of avian elegance. An intensely-orange beak contrasts stunningly with its black tip, nostrils and basal knob, as well as the black equilateral triangle that overspreads the lore between beak and eye.”
