Excellent capture. Thought he was taking off but instead he's just being mean.

Swans are not very friendly birds. Often highly territorial in summer, in winter they try to be social and gather in some waters that never freeze shut, but it causes them a lot of stress and energy to find out who is the greatest swan of them all in the group. This swan had decided it would not suffer any other one to come near to the public bench in the little parc on the upsteam shore of Werd Island, for obvious reasons a highly desirous place to patrol when sitting in the Lake Constance outflow. It put on a huge show almost like defending a nest.
