The Swans of Hyde Park

Before I went to London my Sister informed me that all the swans are property of the queen.  As I passed Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park at sunset packs of swans lined the waters edge.  I might as well have seen the queen.  As I photographed them I became more and more aquainted with swan ways including their unending need to clean, pluck, and fluff their feathers.  They are able to stretch their normally curved necks straight .  When they aren’t furiously cleaning themselves they glide along quite beautifully in the water.  Here’s to the Swans of Hyde Park!
