Photos taken on my HTC Desire and Olympus E-1 mostly taken while walking my 10 year old rescued greyhound, Tim.

Taken just before Tim attacked the swans. As far as he's concerned if they're on land they're fair game. Should have seen it coming, I guess. He's such a mild mannered dog most of the time, but he was pretty close to getting one of the swans by the neck. If it hadn't made for the safety of the water it might have been in trouble. I wish I'd kept shooting but I was too busy yelling at him.

Gorgeous. I'm glad Tim didn't throttle any! ;)
Swans have some mighty big feet!

I must admit I was a bit worried for a minute. Especially as there were lots of people around to witness my dog savaging a swan!
Makes you wonder how they manage to walk with those feet, doesn't it? :)

Urk. They can be soo embarrassing. There they are, doing goofy, or noble or something, suddenly they turn on a sixpence, hit 60mph in a time that would make Konigsegg blush & only dumb luck can save their quarry. Mortifying.
