Hiya Andrew,

Another splish - splash from you then :-)

The way the water shows up is great.

Beautiful bird and great photos - especially the one landing on the lake.

Large waterfowl are fun to watch land and these beautiful birds are a delight to see as they swim quietly by.

Great shot of the splashy landing! The other two shots really capture the beauty of the Mute Swan.

Just as suttle as a B52 bomber but far more elegant ON the water. Well done Andrew.

WHOA--terrific action shot!

Marvin said...

Great photos, especially the landing swan.

You don't want to disappoint an aggressive bird like that. Keep a loaf of bread in your camera bag at all times. Very Funny!

Cool shot of the Mute Swan coming in for a landing Andrew! They always look so calm when they're swimming about don't they?
