This Mute Swan is an old friend, normally he is seen on York’s River Ouse but on this occasion it was one of his rare visits to the university lake. Recently fellow RBer Jesika featured a photo of him.

What a beauty
Thanks again Blamo. Unfortunately the Blacks do not agree with you, they chased him away!
Such elegant and beautiful birds, lovely shot :)
Many thanks GP.
Sure, the Blacks just do not like the Mutes. Racialists! Despite being half their size the Black have no problem seeing the Mutes off.
He comes back just to pose for you and show his beautiful plumage.
Many thanks 4spot. I see him often enough for him to reconise me and wag his tail.
A very beautiful bird and shot !!! Those feathers look heavenly!!!
Enviting enough to be smothered in! Thanks Helua.
PS Thanks for the fave.
He’s to beautiful Aardie to be a “Scarface” l think he needs a name change!!LOL
“Scarface” seems to have stuck but I do not intend any insult to him!
Sir Aard this is magnifico !!!!!
Magnificent he certainly is. It is not until you stand, or better sit, in front of one of these birds that you realise just how big they are. Of the eight species of swan this is the third largest and the Aussie Black is the third smallest.
He’s a handsome fellow – I think his name is a bit harsh! ;o)
Meant with affection, we are the best of friends!
Excellent shot Aard
Thanks again D.
Many thanks Ellen.
