Swans Are Scary

I went for a walk at the park behind our new home-away-from-home in Wichita Falls, Texas.  The park has a mile-long loop around a duck pond and is a wonderful place to stretch your legs.  I went to the edge of the pond to try to photograph the ducks.

They didn't cooperate.  Quacking and raising all sorts of ruckus as they swam away.

Then I looked up and saw this guy making a beeline for me.

Like, seriously, a beeline.  Do you know how big swans are?  And how scary when they are coming toward you?!?

He is either a camera hog or he was hoping for a snack.

I have named him Sven.  Sven the Svan.  He's Svedish.  :)

Sven is a cute name for this Svedish Svan. I guess he thought he was a better subject than the ducks.
