A bevy/herd/team or flock of swans - not sure what right terminology is but there were 'heaps' of them.

A guy was standing in the middle of them with a loaf of bread and they were pretty excited - I put on my long lens and kept well away from them.

Swan Lake Jack... I'd keep my distance too. I believe they can be quite ferocious.
It's a lovely scene. Very artisticly placed and the one in the FG looks so elegant - well done

Really nice Jack ... great detail on that long elegant neck and head. Nicely constructed shot.
