Artist's Description

A beautiful Mute Swan preening it's feathers by the edge of the water.The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is easily recognised by its all-white body and its reddish-orange bill that has a large black 'knob' at the base.Swans spend a good part of their day preening. A preen gland is located at the base of the tail; the gland produces an oil that the swan spreads throughout his feathers. This waxy oil helps to waterproof feathers and to retain heat; it strengthens them and keeps them flexible, as well as moisturizing the bill. They reach for the base of a feather with the bill, then nibble all the way to the tip, removing dirt and small parasites. This also aligns the barbs of feathers so they interlock and create a uniform flexible surface that’s important for insulation and flight.

About Yvonne Johnstone

Yvonne Johnstone

Welcome! I am an Artist/Photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. My interests are wide and varied and this is reflected in my subject matter. I enjoy finding the beauty in even the most mundane subjects and the challenge of depicting the small details which are sometimes overlooked. Where possible, I research my subjects to give me a better understanding, which in turn allows me to adapt my approach to each one. I do not restrict myself to any particular style or media as this gives me the freedom to create my vision on each individual piece. I hope you enjoy browsing my galleries as much as I have enjoyed creating the works. Copyright © Yvonne Johnstone 2022. All rights reserved.
