just a little bit.
Swans have 25 neck vertebrae – that’s almost twice as many as giraffes, who only have 13. With this type of flexebility there are some funny poses.

Hello Sky,
Very interesting this takeoff¿? pose?
I like so much the way the neck bends, and showing us a different scene of this bird.
Very good composition, and the frame with that tiny line works pretty well.

I like this shot! Very well frozen action. Good composition and good POV. The exposure is not 100% good as you overexposed the top of the wings and the white which is connected to the bill. Anyway, I like the picture a lot. Happy holidays!
