Just another great shot! I can imagine easily what you mean about the movement,however.

Good picture. However, the collective noun for a number of swans seen together, not flying, is a 'Game' of swans. When seen in flight, this changes to a 'Wedge' of swans. A group of ducks is known as a 'Balding' or a 'Raft'
