Śliczne zdjęcia łabędzi w różnych pozach. Dziękuję, bo patrzą na zdjęcia widzę różnicę między łabędziem krzykliwym i niemym. Pozdrawiam. *** Cute pictures of swans in various poses. Thank you for looking at the pictures I see the difference between loud and mute swan. Yours.

Nice shot of the Whooper Swan Andrew, the `swaniest` of the swans!

This is a lovely collection of swans, Andrew. I saw Tundra Swans while out looking at Sandhill Cranes but couldn't get close enough for such wonderful images.

And that Black swan look a bad ass.

Excellent set, really nice

each photograph so beautiful Andrew. You were in the right spot ... Note the tag; wonder how often they pick them up to check their data.

Like that black swan. Great clarity in all of your pictures. Is there a video in the works of the swans with background music by Tchaikovsky?
