Nice swan! In this case a little respect is also not bad. They have quite a strong beak and even stronger wings which could easily brake one's leg if they hit the right place. So, be careful, it is springtime for swans as well, they can be quite aggressive. We have a lot of swan on and in our lake, but unfortunately I am almost living in the mountains, so, swans a not daily friends of mine ;-)...
Do you know the famous music from Camille Saint-Saens, called "The Swan"? Take an ear!! Don't be surprised if you look into the face of James Bond, it is only the narrator in "Le Carnival des Animaux)...
