Lovely series. I'm not sure I'd want that beak coming that close to my camera, though!

ty Caine - all these swans are quite young and the star of most of these pics is a right cocky sod

That sounds right - that expression is definitely one that states "I am the coolest thing Gimme Food!"

Aw, classic! Great set, Swans can look so cross, and well done for getting so close!

Be careful though, a swan can break your back with a single swish of its wing, oh yes, dismember you with a sideways glance they can. I read it on th'internet, if you fed it a piece of bread with your fingers he'll have your whole arm off before you can say "Holy-Hovis BatCat!".
So watchit!
