Mute Swan – Heads or Tails

I photographed this Mute Swan at a local Nature area. When you get close it is amazing how large Mute swans are. I like the way they kind of keep an eye on you when you are close to them. I was traveling light with my small m43 camera with a 100-300mm lens which is equivalent, because of the 2X crop factor of m43 cameras, to a 200mm – 600mm lens equivalent on a Canon or Nikon full frame camera body. For a 600mm equivalent the Panasonic 100-300mm has a fairly close minimum focusing distance with a small compact lens that is pretty sharp if you get use to adjusting the files.

  1. Thanks! Perfect subjects. Big and usually close by. They are also really cool to listen to when a bunch fly over and you hear the sound their wings make!
