This shot was taken at "Sant' Anton Gardens", the gardens attached to the Presidential Palace in Malta. Tagged as Pets/Captive animals as I'm not sure whether this would qualify as Wildlife/Nature instead.
I like this shot as it shows the swan in a slightly more messy stage than we usually associate swans with - typically shown in a "graceful" pose. In this shot, I love the fact that there's water dripping from the swan's mouth, and the plume isn't all clean and white as we'd imagine it to be. I sharpened the image a bit to enhance textures.
