i like those, i think swans are very difficult to photograph because of all the white, its so easy to make them blown out.

I really like the close up and the trumpeter swan. The composition on the last one is beautiful!

Lovely pictures. Swans are so regal looking. Every time you post something taken with that lens it gives me the desire to sell everything I own but my cameras and buy one - the quality is awesome!

Very nice photos of a difficult bird to shoot. There is a flock of trumpeters that winters on a pond near my hometown in North Arkansas. I'm hoping they'll have arrived for the winter when I go there this weekend.

Very sharp shots Kjell, and nicely done on some tough exposures.
