Mute Swans Landing

This is the same group of Mute Swans from the previous post. After they flew in front of me they landed in the water to my left. I like photographing Swans for many reasons. The First is they are a large subject so easier to fill the frame than small birds. Second, they can get quite animated when swimming around with others, especially a mate, showing different postures and interactions. Third, is they are really cool to hear flying if they are close to you, quite a whooshing  sound as they go by, especially if you get 5 or more in a low pass. Forth, if a rival male comes in to an area they are nesting, you can get quite a few action shots, with them trying to protect their area. No 5, they are fun to photograph in sequences if they are taking off from water, flapping their feet against the water in their long take-off runs. My list can go on & on, but I will add to it later with other images.
