What might be my last engagement session of the season was with a very cool couple, James and Ivy. We spent a recent evening in downtown, making a nice collection of images. While shooting at the Leahy Mall, Ivy warned me that swans can be vicious. I shrugged off her warning a little bit; afterall, I had photographed in this same spot near the same swans maybe a dozen other times without problem.
Sure enough, this would be the time the swans decided to take issue with my invasion of their space. More than once I had to stand my ground. Okay…more than once I had to retreat. It really wasn’t such an issue except for images where I was shooting low to the ground with my back turned towards them.
Pesky backstabbin’ birds!
