Swans can be a bit of a b*gger to photograph on a sunny day but you have cracked it here, Pete. This reminds me of my boating holiday on the Thames during the long hot Summer of '76. We actually interrupted the filming of The Eagle has Landed when our boat broke down a bit further upstream. Nice colours.
