[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been to Abbotsbury Swannery today and was faced with a barage of cuteness. It was strange seeing so many swans in one place, literally hundreds prodominatly most with young. All the swans were more than used to humans and we managed to get a lot closer than would normally be possible. The cygnets seemed to know they were so cute and played up to the crowds.

Hello Jai
You have captured cuteness in the extreme here!!
Your camera work is spot on and the scene is perfect..Its really interesting to see the stages of development in the young with the changing colours of their down.
I tip my hat to you Sir.
All the best

Hi Jai,

Great capture of the Swan and her cygnets, really nice POv and what cute poses by the Cygnets, good details and colours too.
I actually seen the Abbotsbury Swannery on TV this week and after having Bird Flu in January then flooding in March they were amazed to have such a good number of cygnets, so its nice to see them on TN.


Well done, Jai.
For example a well applied DOF..

Hi Jai!
What a romantic moment you capture in the photo.
Great moment and great subject.
All the best!

Cute Jai...you give the image the softness that it almost demands....not in focus but in feeling...the words and title fit all together..I'm glad it worked out as when I saw it in thumbnail I thought it were a fungi! I thought you had said PUFF balls..so I was surprised....

Lucky you, Jai, to witness so much cuteness.
You captured this scene very well, with a good eye for composition.
Light and details are spot-on.
Talk about neck contortions... not just on one, but on all of them.
Amazing scene.
TFS. : )
