During a recent visit to Naas I went for a walk around the lakes near the hospital, and although I lived in Naas for some time, this is an area I had never visited. The swans had their young nearby, still fluffy and probably only a few weeks old. There was also some activity amongst the male swans, defending their patch perhaps. Some swan fights were very interesting to watch.
The benefit of carrying your camera every where you go was certainly obvious on this occasion as I captured some shots which an iPhone would not have done justice to.
One of these was a Swan rearing out of the water in all its glory – see below.
