"HISSSSSS!!"

We were standing on a wooden observation point watching the swans ,cygnets and mallards,when a small dog appeared.This swan became very alarmed and would have attacked the dog,I think,if there weren't any wooden railings there!
Many thanks for all your comments,always much appreciated.
Oh what a capture! terrific detail and what timing!

Even our wild whooper swans are very brave if somebody is disturbing them and going too close.
Great picture!
