LOL, Guy. It was! There's another pair of swans at the lake who usually stay in a back pond. But now its fall, that pair seems to be coming into the big lake more (where there are people with handouts) and acting really aggressively against the family. At least now its 5 against 2, so the family still goes where it wants to, though interestingly, Dad isn't being quite as territorial as he used to be - I guess its good for the kids to learn what the big world is like.

Right place, right time, great shot.

Thanks, Dianne ! Since it only ended in a lot of ruffled feathers, it was pretty cool to watch.

Thank-you, Mine Saguner :) Hopefully the mean pair trying to come into the territory of the family won't drive them off. They've been great to watch all summer. Cheers!

Impressive scene, well caught! Our swans are not peaceful either. ;-))

Greetings, Manfred

Thanks, Manfred1220 ! Interesting how we think of swans as a symbol of peace and loving, isn't it? The family on our lake was very used to people and friendly, but not so much between the different swan pairs!
