I love it when swans do that. Very rare for me to see a swan at all, and never at ease enough to do this. Well captured! :clap:

Great capture :)
I think it's a male, though. Males typically hold their wings high

Thank you. I'm not entirely sure it's a female, but since there was only one pair of swans present, I assumed the smaller one was the female :D

I'm not sure about size, but you can tell from the thickness of the neck, the size of the bulge on their head and the way they hold their wings. Males have a thicker neck, a bigger bulge and often hold their wings high to impress the females :aww:
