Swans feature often in my photostream. but this is one of the most satisfactory swan shots I have taken so far - courtecy of the cygnets of course. I had been stalking this swan family for a few days, and one day they finally came close enough to the shore of the lake near our house to catch them. Makes a great wallpaper as well (original size 2160x1719 is available on the Flickr page).
