Swans: Whoopers vs. mutes

Mutes don't have much to say, and Whoopers don't shut up. Below is a Whooper. And yes, it's one of my favorite photos, taken at Tjörnin, a lake in the heart of Reykjavík, Iceland. Great place to photograph swans. Bring a tape recorder too.


And then there was the time by Tjörnin I saw the Whoopers (for the lack of a better word) necking. Even more oddly, I not only had a camera with me but was in a position to use it.
