Pond in Roxbury, New Jersey
This swan cob postured this way to let a Canada Goose know he was on the swan's territory, and, soon after this photograph, the cob chased down the Goose, and sent him packing to the bigger pond across the street. I've never seen such a huge swan, and this was taken in the 2nd year I studied them, so he was already that much larger, protective and bossier!
Cropping and straightening tools were used in this photograph.
