The swan shot is a wall hanger ! Great detail in the wings and I like the way they are isolated against the grey sky.
Good shootin' Mark.

Nice shots Mark. That blackbird sure looks a lot like his relative the American Robin. As for the swans, a great synchronized flight shot. As you noticed, it doesn't hurt a bit when the birds circle around and give you time to get it right. Those kinds are always my favorites.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Steve, yes your robin and our blackbird are very similar - both of the thrush family.Youre absolutely right - if the swans had only made one pass I doubt very much i`d have got this shot,thankfully they gave me a few chances to get it right :-)

Very nice shots, Mark. No. 1 is an amazing capture, and #2 is very clear and sharp.
