I like this a lot.. With the reflection of the bridge in the water , it makes a 'frame' for the swans... Lovely!!!!

Good timing Ron, if that's crack beak and family it seems like one cygnet is missing. Wait for the anti bird comments!

A remarkable shot. Even after 50+ years, I knew exactly where it was taken without reading the caption.
