Beautiful. I stood in the cold watching two on the canal a couple of days ago, so graceful :)

Their plumage is so beautiful and white.

Such graceful birds, but so ferocious if they are guarding nests and goslins.

They certainly protect their young Waddy. Nature's way really for animals to protect their babies. They are beautiful birds.

My friend was throwing bread one time and turned round to find a giant swan standing really close. His head came up to her shoulder. She didn't know whether to run off or keep very still.

Hi Dorjac, yesthey can stretch out to be very tall when out of the water. There are Canada geese down there as well and they are bigger than you think when closeby.
