A 'Silly-Sunday' shot for you today !!........NO, the title refers to the fact this swan is upended, & feeding off the bottom of the pool !!!.....what do you think I meant ????.GrinGrin

It was taken during a visit to Slimbridge back in Sept., I was on a board-walk overlooking the swans.....they were searching for the food that had been thrown in by the
visitors, that had sunk to the bottom.......so I held my camera out over the water to get this shot, looking straight down onto the swan in this precarious position !!!!Grin

Many thanks to everyone for the great response to 'Derwent Cloudbreak'.....& special thanks to SteveSloan for the UA, Ta muchly !!!!!!!!!Smile

The sun's blazing down at the moment, so I'm off out for the day...........
