Description

Mute swans breeding on small ponds have a zero-tolerance policy against geese. Here, in front view, a male looks ready to burst with anger as he tucks his head back between raised wings in a typical threat posture. This behavior / behaviour served him well in raising his brood last year, but this year (2007) he has gone missing. And no swans again this year (2008).

Any swan with raised wings is in aggressive mood; and when swimming, the bow wave at the front shows that the bird is travelling at speed. Here are some other photographs of mute swans in fighting mood:
