[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We rarely see these shy and wary birds on the river any more, but this day I had rare luck! Not only swans, but falling snow! I used my long lens from across the river, quite a distance away, but as soon as one noticed me watching, they all took off.

Hi Shelley

Wow... lots of action happening here. Great in-flights. Nice work. :-)

Hi Shelley, excellent capture of these swans. You have very good composition even given that it was a rushed shot. Very well done.

Thanks, John

fantastic, TFS Ori

Hello Shelley,
Wonderful action shot - I can almost hear their wings flapping! Beautiful reflections, lovely colours and I like the wter droplets all over, even on your lens, I think.
TFS, Ulla

Hello Shelley,
what a lovely composition. capturing the Trumpeter swans flyiing of into the snow flurries must have been quite exciting.
Very nice action and great POV.

You captured the right moment here, the swans all have their wings in the forward position,
nice composition and good sharpness
