Bathtime

These are a few images from a Mute Swan’s bathtime session. The entire session took over 30 minutes and that did not include the occasion flicking off of ‘imaginary specks of dust’ that followed.

Taken at Greylake, Somerset, on 18th November 2012.

Absolutely gorgeous Malcolm :) Lovely lighting.
I have never seen the marking on the underside of a swans beak, (no4) it looks like a butterfly.
