There once was an angry Mute Swan

Never exactly elegant, but always captivating to watch a Swan in flight. Even better when you can watch them taking to the air or coming into land. Here at Titchwell there were several pairs on the water.




 
From the pictures above, all looks peaceful. That is until the neighbourhood bully turns up. Yep, this guy was seeing off all and sundry, and he wasn't happy.
 
 



 Have that, and don't come back! Yes, this is the first Swan (on the left) pictured above that was minding it's own business, being harassed by the angry bully.

  15. We have some swans at our local neighborhood duck pond, and I love getting photos of them chasing off the Canada geese! You got some really great shots! (If you look for mine on my Joy4Today blog, they are under the "Display of Excellence" post.)
