GET OFF MY PATCH!

By brownbear
A rather territorial swan taking offence at an intrusion on his territory! Burnt out on back and wings I know, but his aggresive flight only lasted a few seconds, and as I would rather catch it than seek perfection and not get the shot. Thanks for comments on previous shots always appreciated.

Fantastic movement shot, well lit and well balanced. Did he get to reach you? IB

No he didn't, swans make lots of noise and flap a lot, but if you stand your ground they will usually go away!
