Mute swan (Cygnus olor) taking a bath.
I recognized this male swan near Oxford in a canal, where it was swimming with his mate. Once he started to have a bath. Lights were truly terrible to have a good shot. While he drifted down, arrived under the canopy of a large, overhanging tree, which created a dark background with its shadow.
However, sun still shined on the swan, so the situation looked like a studio setting. In couple seconds awful lights became interesting.
It is worth to be patient!
