Mute Territorial

More Mute Swan action with a Male chasing off a pair of interlopers.

The Pursued

The Pursuer

Sometimes they chase the unwanted for quite some distance, but on this occasion he could see that they were getting airborne so he started his slow down using his large webbed feet like water skis.

Off go the pursued to another adjoining lake.


  1. These are fantastic shots Roy. when I was at Mount Stewart 2 weeks ago, the exact same thing happened there but the interlopers did not give up easy. they had a couple of goes landing on the lake before the residents finally made them understand that this as NOT their lake. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. You don't see many sets of pictures tell a story as well as this!

  3. Great sequence - really love the Mute footwork! Cheers.

  4. An excellent 'action' series. Well done Roy.

  5. I love the use of the large flat feet! Caught so fantastically on camera, thank you Roy:)

  6. Beautiful fly images of this swan.
    Very nicely done.

  7. Stunning photos as usual! Love the shots on top of the water.....Looks like it is skating on water :-)

  8. WOW!
    These pictures are so dynamic!
    Congratulations Roy!
    I'd love to see a swan take off in front of me :)
    Keep well!
