In the grounds of the castle we always visit when we’re up in Scotland is a lovely little pond which often freezes over in winter. You can just make out the soft silhouette of a duck waddling around on the ice in the background of this shot, while the beautiful swan holds the fort in pretty much the only defrosted patch.

I guess this swan gets a lot of visitors because it’s pretty cool with someone getting really close with a camera. I’m always ready to get the hell out of the way in case it suddenly has an attack of vanity, because swans can take your face off. I’ve heard.
