Default Swan in the morning sun.

Hi Chums,
My first post in the Wildlife section, Just had a look around and it's real nice here.
Was at the creek edge today at the bottom of the road and the Swans turned up. The sun was low and the creek mud flats not very appealing but got a couple of silhouettes. used a warm up filter 55-200 lens.
Cheers Chums.
Mark

I like the first one best, Mark. I don't know what that stuff is floating around the birds, but it's very distracting to me.

I agree - the first one is very good. Swans are really interesting birds.

Mark - beautiful shot! I also love the first one. The color is great and the swan is perfectly posed.

Thanks Gary, the second shot was to show what it was like there, there was lots of sea wead in the water and it was all at the edge of the mud flats which didn't look very nice. Luckily one Swan went out a little deeper away from all the weed.
