Tender ritual

One of my favourite and most intimate things to capture as a photographer (and as an artist…I painted this subject in oils last year); a preening swan, carrying out its very thorough ablutions right below my feet at the lake’s edge. This one was on the Serpentine in London’s Hyde Park, a place in which I’ve had very good fortune regarding such photo opportunities as all the wildlife there is so calm and confident around human spectators. Always feels like a very sacred act to be allowed to witness, nonetheless. A series of three images, available as prints with various options.
