Coscoroba Swan

By Mike_Smith
Hi everyone, i hope your all safe today, here in the north the winds have done a bit of damage, a quite large tree opposite my house has blown down, chimney stacks in the town toppled off a pub roof.
Anyway as always thanks for all your C & Cs on my previous shot. Today i have a Coscoroba Swan, quite a beautiful one too.

The Coscoroba Swan is a species of waterfowl inhabiting southern South America. It is the smallest of the birds called "swans", but still a large species of waterfowl, averaging 4.2 kg, 1 m long and 1.57 m across the wings.

Excellent image Mike. The weather has been wild here too - although seems to be calming down now.
