Worcester College swans

Worcester College swans

Henry Hawthorne , December 2012

This photo was taken from the side of the lake at Worcester College in Oxford. It was the first major snowfall for the UK this winter, and I spotted these swans trying to crack through the ice while the ducks walked around on top. On reflection, it seems that the swans thought that my camera was a delicious, black, shiny packet of breadcrumbs.
