Mute Swan Preening

I saw this Mute Swan swimming in the pond at the McFaul Environmental Center. Usually the Swans seem to be protecting a nearby nest, but this one was just swimming & preening in the water. 

All were shot with a m43 Panasonic GH2, LUMIX G VARIO 100-300/F4.0-5.6, 35mm equiv. 600mm

    • Thanks! Between guarding their nest and preening you have a chance for some interesting shots. Especially when they flap along the surface of the water chasing geese!
