[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mute Swan (Cygnus olor)

Taken today at my local swannery.
This swan stood there and kept opening his wings and holding the postion and slowy looking inside his wings as if to say i use Persil washing powder for perfect whites, very funny to watch, any way enough of the chit chat, heres a little about Mute Swans.

The huge, elegant Mute Swan is one of the most familiar of waterfoul.
It hols its neck in a graceful curve, distinctive at long range, and has a longer tail than the two tundra-breeding swans. Territorial pairs are aggressive, driving off intruders with arched winds and loud hisses.

Thanks for looking

Nice DOF that seems to just about cover the swan... So that was where you went then! Hope you all enjoyed it there.

Nice capture Mike,
Good detail, colours and sharpness.
Composition and exposure are excellent. Good POV and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a good week.

Bonsoir Mike,

Félicitations pour cette composition. J'aime bien l'exposition parfaite qui fait bien ressortir les détails dans le plumage de l'oiseau malgré le blanc maculé. Bravo pour la netteté et les couleurs justes.
