[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this Black Swan in Alipore Zoo.Those who has visited this zoo he/she knows that there is a open lake where Migratory Birds come every year in the advent of Winter and stay through out the winter.So I didn't think twice to post it,although it is a zoo picture.

It was a sunny day and light was really harsh for photography.

The Black Swan(Cygnus atratus) is a large waterbird,a species of Swan,which breeds mainly in the Southeast and Southwest regions of Austrelia.Black Swans are large birds with mostly black plumage and red bills.They are monogamous breeders that share incubation duties and cygnet rearing between the sexes.

Scientific Classification:
Species:C.atratus(Latham 1790)

Thanks for viewing....
