[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mute Swan

The mute swan is the national bird of Denmark, and, contrary to what one might believe, not that mute at all. It will wheeze quite loud when it's chicks are approached, and it will attack both big dogs and people in order to protect it's nest.

Hi Dan,

A few in-flight shots of Swans today, I'm a little envious as I haven't managed to capture one myself yet, I always manage to fail.

Great shot, nice crisp detail, beautiful clear sky. Nice POV/angle and excellent colours. Jaap says KLM but the outline of this looks more like the Lufthansa logo to me :-)

Have a great weekend,

Hi Dan
While most of us just wish to be able to shoot a flying bird (any species) you have joined the list of selected few who has done this successfully.
The composition is great, the colours are stunning, the details are amazing, and the exposure was perfectly managed.
Very well done and TFS.

The Airbus A380 of the birds ! Love the great uniform background, the sharpness over both wings and the unusual tilt in flight. Also perfect light. Great !
