These shots, were shot under lousy light, but a wonderful subject. The first is from a hundred yards, the last, three hundred.

ISO 800, f13, 1/1000

These guys are permenent residents of the seas off the Brooklyn shore.

Ahh, the lens. Well the lens is Swarovski AT 80 HD, in this case with the 1100mm camera adapter.

In that last shot, I belive the Swans were actually a good ten feet apart, but at that distance, they are compressed to look on top of each other. Weird shot!
