Re: Mute Swan Cygnets

very cute little group there !! it looks like you had some nice warm light there, was the flash really needed ? probably for fill ?
when stated you spent 2 hours in that water I HAD to look to see where you live !! I live in Florida and would be very reluctant to spend 2 hours in water like that fearing of Gators !!

Re: Mute Swan Cygnets

Beautiful shot. Well worth the wait. Ya got more patience than I have, but then again, me and water would never bond like that.

Well done with this one.

Re: Mute Swan Cygnets

I'm with Carl (spicoli) "Ya got more patience than I have". Now if this was fly fishing and wading a stream, 2 hours would fly by. Great photo and worth your time and effort. What's the plant floating on the water?
