Never too many swan pictures,for me! This is just lovely,with the reflections in the water,all leaf and sky.

"Graceful and serene on the surface while paddling like mad underneath". A great photo of an elegant bird. Love the reflections in the water.

Maggie you do me too much credit. I was just out for an evening ramble between Sennicar Lane and Haigh bridges when this presented itself. It was a snap or miss moment.No doubt some will say I should have got the whole of the swan's reflection.Come on Mick.

There to much reflection in the water to make this a good photo like so many of you think it is.

Mick it is nature and 'Mother Nature' knows best!

You'd be a very rich man Neil if you were.

Good picture of seemingly an angry swan. Wouldn't want to get too close!

Comment by: irene roberts on 2nd May 2016 at 19:15

Put a bet on for me too, Neil, whilst you're at it! A certainty! x.

I once was an ugly duckling -but look at me now! Such a beautiful, graceful bird and the water looks so cool and refreshing.

Lovely work Mr Cain.

Thank you for the generally positive comments. I am glad that it was enjoyed by the vast majority. You always expect at least one negative.
