I walked along part of the canal today. At Fobney Lock, I spotted this Mute Swan on the other side of the lock, preening itself.
Taking out the long lens, I was able to get a reasonable close up. I could possibly have got closer, but at the risk of disturbing it. I therefore stayed put, and took my photographs from there.
It was a case of capturing it when its beak was in a suitable position. It seemed to know, as every time I pressed the shutter it moved its beak out of the way!
Finally, I managed to get a shot when its beak was in view. As it was working quite furiously, I am quite pleased with the result.
