Shooting swans

Just a couple of images today from a walk I took with my dad by the River Cam, near the village of Milton. I enjoyed shooting (I know that sounds a bit inappropriate, and I may go to prison) the very photogenic family of swans who hang about here. 

For anyone who's interested, apparently swans make excellent guard-creatures for your house. They'll behave in hostile fashion towards everyone who isn't their parent (that would be you), so they'll deter intruders. And although they can't be house-trained, they can become accustomed to wearing a little plastic bag under their tail feathers, thus avoiding embarrassing messes. A splendid thought altogether.... But they are pretty.
