These stunning images show two intertwined swans appearing to form a figure of eight with their necks.

The two swans can be seen floating one in front of the other, with their necks appearing to cross to make the shape.

The optical illusions were taken by Qaderi Sami at the lakes of Alqudra in Marmoon Desert, Dubai.

Qaderi, 51, said: “I noticed the Black Swan couple doing a ceremony, it took one click to capture the figure of eight and then they seperated.

“It came to my mind instantly that it was good luck.

“Usually these ceremonies happen while I shoot other birds and Flamingos at the lakes too.”
