A beautiful close-up, we can see the whole world around in his eye.
I've never seen such a kind of Swan, Mike, perhaps we don't have them here in in Germany.
Thanks and have wonderful Christmas-days bye

Very good close up of this swan.
It is not easy to get the right balance between the white feathers and the black beak, but you perfectly succeeding in to keep all the details in this portrait. Well done.

I like your tight crop here, this is really a close up.
Nice texture on the feathers and the skin around the beak.
Perhaps the dark background makes no enough contrast with the beak color, but anyway has a great visual impact.
Congratulations and happy holidays,

I am really enjoying this close up. The details in the head and beak are just amazing. And I think I can see you in the reflection of the eye.
