[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is a Hiranai town in the Higashitsugaru-gun located in the north end of Aomori Prefecture. When the winter every year comes, a lot of swans are introduced from Siberia. They had taken a rest in the sea where a swan near by 100 and a lot of ducks had faced the coast when I went. It doesn't run away even if it is accustomed, and the person depends to be near. It was able to encounter the scene that splashed down only once while they usually stayed though they took a rest slowly and they swam with seawater.

I like this image, Kato-san. There is a nice feeling of motion to the shot. Also, the alignment of the three swans works very well. The shutter was fast enough to stop the action, and I think the DoF is OK (perhaps the front bird is just a bit OOF). But a solid mage, I'm surprised it hasn't receeived any points before.

I agree with Mike- I'm surprised to see no points before. I saw this picture because of his comment.

This is a very good capture of something that is difficult to see. The curves of their powerful wings are very beautiful. Well done.
