Mute Swan - adult (under water!)

Mute Swan - adult (under water!)

A ghostly looking image of a swan swimming under water, I've never seen this behaviour in a Mute Swan (or any other swan for that matter!), it dived several times, mostly short distances but a couple of times travelled 30-40' before surfacing. It didn't seem to be bathing, none of the usual splashing around, wing flapping and dipping it's body in the water, very strange indeed!
Taken at Hogganfield Loch, Glasgow.
