On the beach with people resting and swans. Neither the swans nor the other people not feel awkward on the wide beach, room enough for all. When you see swans floating in the pond, they seem so large as on the beach. Each individual is a fit above the knee.
Seen such a picture: two guys were sitting on the beach and drinking beer, apparently one of the swans did not like it, and he went to them in the attack, while hissing menacingly. The boys grabbed a beer and went to the leaked, Swan proudly arched neck and went back to his. Females certainly made an impression.
