It always amazes me how swans are able to bend their necks into such tightly curled shapes.
I took this photo from a hide at the WWT's Welney Wetland Centre in Norfolk. The late afternoon sun behind this swan was just catching the edges of its feathers and giving the whole image a warm glow. I like the contrast in textures between the silky feathers of the swan and the wind-ruffled lake in the background.
Astonishingly, this whooper swan will likely have travelled all the way from Iceland to spend the winter here in the UK.
