Saturday Snapshot -- Swimming

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
The photographer, who took Grace's senior picture and is scheduled to take Spencer's senior picture in August, has some kids on the swim team. Lucky for me. She sent this great photo of Tucker swimming butterfly.


Butterfly has always been my favorite stroke to watch Tucker swim because the muscles in his back ripple and he looks so powerful. You can see from this picture that his arms stretch almost across the whole lane, which might hint that he will grow even taller than the 6-feet tall that he is now.
Tucker doesn't like the picture because his mouth is to the side, but that's just how he breathes when he swims butterfly.

I admire anyone who can do the butterfly stroke...that just kills my arms!

This is my favorite stroke to watch swimmers doing as well, apparently it's not so easy. I don't swim. Great Shot.

That's a great shot of him! It is so much fun to watch a good butterfly swimmer.

I've never heard of a butterfly stroke.

Stephanie said...

Whoa! That's some wingspan! He looks rather albatross-like.

Great action photos are difficult to capture, and the stop-action quality is amazing when they turn out well, like this one.

Great shot. (I want to play this Saturday snapshot game!) My sister was a state champion in butterfly. I tried it....once. I was too exhausted to continue.

Every good novels has twists, turns and setbacks, but this isn't a novel -- it's my life. Nevertheless, we received a setback on Mo...
