[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Mute Swan is found naturally mainly in temperate areas of Europe across western Asia, as far east as the Russian Maritimes, near Sidemi.[16] Gmelin (1789) and John Latham (1824)[10] reported Mute Swans present in Kamchatka in the 18th century.

It is partially migratory throughout northern latitudes in Europe and Asia, as far south as north Africa and the Mediterranean.

It is a very rare breeding or migrating species in our region, there are breeding for second time at Sinpaul.

Very nice photo of this Swan in flight. Excellent sharpness, details and composition. Very good timing. Beautiful natural colours.

Bonjour Jozsef,
Splendide publication d'une part par l'excellente opposition du sujet sur l'arrière plan et d'autre part par l'excellente profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails

Hello Szabo,
Immaculate and majestic! ... and applause for the colors! ... Is a picture really nice to see. I like the result with square cut, it might seem a bit tight, but on the contrary, the effect is quite dynamic. Good job!

great capture, TFS Ori
