    1. Thank you!!😁 For the first time, I almost had two close encounters with swans while kayaking. I was hidden by the reeds taking photos of a swan family when this swan flew very low over us. Thankfully we were all too surprised by the event to react. The swan flying was too stunned to land, papa swan was too infuriated to do more than fluff his feathers and give me a dirty look and I never thought to quit taking photos. Although, once I saw how upset papa swan was, I grabbed my paddle and made a quick escape.😁

        Absolutely fabulous. Really gives meaning to the saying that chance only favors the prepared mind.

    Spectacular shot, and even more so given the way the encounter unfolded!

    1. Thank you!🙂 When I saw the swan flying over the reeds I was excited to be in the perfect spot, but never thought that instead of elevating it was about to look for a place to land.😁
