[align=center]All taken with a Sigma 28-135mm on a Pentax *isDS
Heading straight towards us on the slipway
I believe that the female has the paler coloured beek[/align]

All 5 cygnets with a protective 'dad'[/align]

3 of the cygnets eyeing up a floating piece of weed[/align]

They look really cute & can't be that old[/align]

This young cygnet came in rather too close[/align]

Posing for a shot[/align]

[align=center]I I hadn't realised just how close they had come towards me
Lucky for me the parent bird wasn't at all alarmed - thankfully

Looks like a very sharp lens to me, I like the close ups of the cygnets.

Very nice series! Those babies are so cute, and they all seem to be pretty used to people.

Wow. Great series. Wish my Sigma 24-135mm was as sharp as that.
