This is a grab and shoot shot from last month... On hearing the unmistakable sound of a Swan attempting lift off I turned and managed to get this one shot off... anyhow it's been cropped and tinkered with so I hope you like it.

They're like 747's, aren't they? It makes you wonder how they ever get into the air. Yet so graceful when they've achieved it.
I like grab shots -and this is a cracker SmileSmile
