Black Swan

The Black Swan is found mostly in Australia and New Zealand where it was hunted to extinction but later re-introduced. There are several feral black swans in Britain and I have seen one once out in the wild there. They believe there may be as many as 45 nesting pairs now. This image of a black swan was taken at the London Wetlands Centre in London and is part of the permanent non-wild exhibit.  They are quite beautiful!
