There's Only One Way To Find Out...

Ever wondered who'd win a fight between a hungry swan and two curious Shetland(?) ponies?
Think this was a young (immature) swan due to it's plumage and that it didn't really know what it was doing. It gave a lot of hiss though!

Either that's one big swan or those are two tiny ponies! ;-)

@dmortega both i think! lol

Swans are surely mean, and ponies are more of a flight animal, so Im going with the swan!
January 7th, 2011  
ahh look at those ponies...love it. wonder what happened. please post later...

What a cool capture!
January 7th, 2011  
nice capture...i'm betting the ponies ran away, the swan turned round hissed "what you lookin' at?" and gave you a run for your money for trying to get a snap of him!!

@sparkle Actually I was above them but nearly slipped at one point. I was a little worried the swan would fly straight at me though!

So who won? Like the contrast colors of the subjects!

I've never lived with swans, but we had geese on the farm when I was a kid and they scared the living daylights out of me. So I'm betting that the swan saw the ponies off. Lovely contrast in the picture, too.

January 7th, 2011

@blightygal Ah, I was on the canal path, they were in a field on the other side of the wall!

Arrgh those crazy lil' ponies always hunt in pairs, but the swan's got to win. Nice action face-off.
January 7th, 2011  
Lol cute! My bet definitely is on the swan! Scary things!!

These bird and horse shots are some of my favorites. Great captures.
January 7th, 2011  
I vote swan, those horses are so tiny. Great capture.
January 7th, 2011  
The bigger they are, the harder they fall - the swan will win for sure ;)
