This mute swan was taken in the wild. However honesty
forces me to admit that it was very tame. Eventually accepting treats right out of my hand. Must have become
used to people at Stanly Park in Vancouver or similar park.
Trumpeter swans winter over here but this is the first mute
in my memory. A lucky day.

A beautiful image. A tame mute swan is almost an oxymoron. A truly nasty bird.

I like them, but never want to get too close! This is a lovely image complete with the little water droplet.

A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured ornithological image with great colour and pin sharp detail Tony

Peter and Joan suggest the mute is a swan to be wary of. Well this one had
the best of manners. Took pieces of multi-grain out of my hand in a most polite
manner. Made little sounds of thanks too. Not entirely mute. Thanks for comments.
I hope this very gentle swan survives considering how tame it is. TG
