Don’t Be Afraid To Stick Your Neck Out!

Mute Swan

What did one potato chip say to the other?

Shall we go for a dip?

Interesting Fact: Short legs placed well back on the body give Mute Swans an awkward walking gait, but the birds can run quickly if pursued and can take off from land and water, flying with head and neck extended. On the water they sometimes hold their wings slightly raised and “sail” with the wind. Mute Swans are predominantly monogamous and form long-lasting breeding pairs. They are extremely aggressive in defending their breeding territory. ( )


  1. What a sharp and crisp image! I really appreciate the inclusion of the reflection of Swan’s neck in the water. (Lots of people would miss that portion of the shot.) I also admire the water buildup in front of the body as it is plowing through the water. What a subtle action shot. Kudos!

    • Thank you very much, I always try to include the reflection in the water I feel it’s actually as important as the swan itself. I always enjoy your feedbacks. Happy Blogging! 🙂
