Hope this was just a stretch and nothing permanent! Nicely seen. - Racine

That looks uncomfortable! Hope he's OK...

Well spotted. Looks pretty healthy apart from that though.

Sad and strange.

Agree with Laine, he may have been caught by the foot. I have seen many "one legged" birds who survive very well. I think this one will too. Excellent find and a very nice photograph!

But, he has adapted well. Nice shot!

Poor thing - a good thing it can live on water, it would be at
quite a disadvantage on land with that foot.

Awwww....... poor swan. Please give it a big hug for me! V
Reminds me of an injured swan that we saw in Hallstatt, Austria a few years ago.

Perhaps "Trapped" at some time...a good capture, Frank
