Swan, water take-off, 09:44, while trailrunning

invisible at first
wingtips slapping the surface
tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap
glides just clear of the water
wings - ssshhww sshhww sshhww

Lovely.

Was the amazing visual effect on the ssshhww sshhww sshhww of the wings deliberate?

To me, the letters appear to shrink towards the end of each word, just as the volumen of the actual sound trails off at the end of each wingbeat. Very dependent on the font (I can't see it on the courier draft reply, for example.)

Thanks, Mr. Knaves. It was completely accidental.
