Curious Swans

Out walking the other weekend when these beauties spotted me on the footbridge. I stopped to admire them and over they came, curious and probably looking a tidbit of food. When they discovered I had nothing on offer they calmly turned around and paddled away but not before the male fluffed up his wings and showed me his fancy white plumage as if to reinforce his stateliness and that he was well above begging for bread. Serene, regal and a little haughty I thought! They are truly beautiful creatures, I always feel very privileged to get anywhere near them. 
These are only phone pics but do click to make them bigger – the birds are lovely to behold in greater detail.
