Friendly swan at the Hida Folk Village open-air museum, Takayama.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

What a lovely capture. The reflections are superb!

Great shot... swans are such majestic birds, although not always as friendly as they look like... ;)

Greetings!

The swan is lovely against the dark water. I went to Iwakuni to see Kintaikyo. In a little park by the bridge, the swans weren't nearly so friendly. They tried to attack a fellow.

@Steve Rice: They can be vicious... thanks Steve.
