All this man wanted was a selfie with a swan, but it didn't quite work out the way he planned in his head. 

YouTube user Steven Takata uploaded a video and said, "My brother-in-law got a little too close for his selfie with the trumpeter swans at the Great Bend Zoo in Kansas."

The video, which has over 67,000 views, shows the man trying to take a selfie with the Trumpeter swan behind him, but as soon as he whipped out that phone to take the picture the swan jumped up to bite him.

Lesson learned? At least he got a good shot.
