Mute Swan, juvenile (Eurasia, Africa, N. America, Australia)
Snapped @ Tiger World, Rockwell NY.
“Native to much of Eurasia, and the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name ‘mute’ derives from it being less vocal than other swan species.”
Not the friendliest dude/dudette in town, but sho’ ‘nuff’s purdy 😍
