Surely a sign of spring when the Swans show off their family at the quay - hope you enjoy these as much as we did seeing them.

What a treat to see that. Something about the very last shot catches my eye.

They are SO cute! I like the series, the shots with both Mom and Dad shepherding the family. If I had to pick just one (glad I don't have to because I like them all), it would be the last one by a hair though.

Please that you liked them, I too have a preference for the last one.

These 2 were shot on my wife's Lumix FZ100 - I must invest a longer focal length lens.

Love the water droplets on their bodies.
Very nice shots. Thank you for sharing with us.

Indeed very cute, and very nicely done. Last shot indeed the most pleasing composition for me too.

PS - If you are willing to work with manual focus, you can find some long lenses relatively cheaply. I've had good success with various birds using a (very old) Pentax SMC 135-600... and have seen some great results with the old M 400 f5.6, just to mention a few...
