Watch out some of them bite.

I was attacked (yes, literally attacked) by a swan when I was a kid and it frightened me to death. I must be the only person in the world who hates swans!!!! Great photo, though. Ciao. A.

Cheeky Bird. Brilliant action shot.

There was a story in the news just the other day about a "killer" swan in Pembroke who had killed 15 rivals (swans that is not photographers!).

Fun photo! Yikes - I would want a swan bite!

Didn't realize they could be so aggressive.

I love this picture. Swans can be mean birds, though! This guy is brave!

I see those swans can stretch those long necks.

Anna said...

Man alive, that bird is almost as tall as I am.

Wonderful shot! I think that man must be used to the swans and they to him. I've only ever fed them from a boat!

Euk! It looks hungry! They are so strong and can be very aggressive.

Brilliant shot! I love swans and saw some up close for the first time last year while canoeing with my boyfriend. He couldn't get over how excited I was, but we have so few of them in Montreal that actually seeing a live one instead of a photo was quite the event for me!

That's a great capture! I was in St James's Park earlier today and took some nice pictures of the swans, but nothing as impressive as this!

They have nasty serrated beaks too! Swans are definitely more beautiful at a safe distance.

Is that Hyde Park? I saw so many cute ducks and swans while running there in May. I was lucky enough to see the baby ducks. When I took my hubby back later to see them, they were gone. I lucked out. :-)

I absolutely loathe swans. When I was growing up, a fellow I knew lost an eye to a swan. Everyone thinks they're so lovely and gentle, but they're incredibly savage beasts.

I think swans are pretty to look at but that would have scared the life out of me!!
