Closeup of Juvenile mute swan
Sort of a "teenager", this mute swan is not yet an adult so still wears brownish feathers and its beak has not yet turned orange. I guess it must have felt sufficiently camouflaged to let me get right up close as its feathers do resemble dirty snow...kind of. It is watching me closely though!
