The Big Kahuna is the guy in the back snipping at the wing of the foreground Swan.  He came into the lake that is off to the right, from the lake that is off to the left, and ran off 4 other swans.  He has a mate on eggs on the lake off to the left but I guess he has a big territory.

Kung Foo Fighting

The swans were gett’n lively on the pond.  The fighting ritual is very intriguing to observe.  There are elaborate dances and then an attack on what seems to be a rather unsuspecting individual (I don’t think he got the memo that he was involved) , followed by a victory celebration followed by another attack as shown above.  These are a few outtakes from a rather long sequence.
