This is Hyde Park in Perth, Western Australia.
It’s a beautiful park that shares its name with other parks all over the world. Why are there so many Hyde Parks? I did a quick count and found 12 so far. (There’s one in almost every Australian State!).
A man approached me as I was taking photographs of the swans, asking if he could please take a photo using my camera as he had left his at home. I know how it feels to miss a moment so I let him take a few. This was the last shot of the swans that I managed to get as they kind of fled the scene… Daddy is playing catch-up. The cygnets were completely adorable, the two closest to mum managed to hitch a ride.
