A male Mute Swan showing off his prowess. I'm sure all the ladies were very interested.

This is from a while ago, as I have not been able to get out with my camera over the last 3 weeks due to my workload. Hopefully if the weather stays fine this week, I might find some time towards the end of the week, fingers crossed.
Large is good if you have time.

Thanks again fo all the C&C's on my uploads, they are all very much appreciated.
It makes all my efforts worthwhile in trying to improve my skills.
I hope you enjoyed you weekend.

Steve.

Lovely shot. I was just looking at some photos of swans I took a couple of weeks ago on the Great Western Canal in Tiverton but they are nearly all over-exposed. So, I'm not very jealous!!
