Male mute swans are very territorial and have no problem attacking people, or even boats if they are feeling threatened. Thankfully, this handsome fellow was only in a rush to get a free handout. I kept a discreet distance and he and his mate posed quite nicely for me for a half an hour or so. I took this on Lake Ames in Rockaway, NJ USA. I used my Nikon D3100 and the 70-300mm zoom lens.
