The Charge

Mute swan swimming directly towards the camera
This mute swan was happily charging backwards and forwards across the river with his mate, but was determined to show that swans are not always graceful and serene. For the whole time we watched him, they didn't stop charging - fast, almost aggressive, swimming. The rough wake behind him gives a hint of how fast he was going.
