The Slaughter on the Water

By Andysnapper
OK it's not quite the Thrilla in Manilla but its all I could think of this early in the morning.

Anyway, this is the culmination of the last two photos when the big mute swan saw off the rival black swan. No holds barred either, this was really nature red in tooth and claw (well beak and wing I suppose).

Thanks for looking and for all your comments, always appreciated.

"Rumble in the Jungle" a great scrap, hopefully there was only one outcome, and that they finally shook wings, touched beaks and made up.

Nice timing, Andy. The presentation in almost square frame goes well with the image. Excellent capture. Deep
