I like to photograph Swans. One – They are Large! Two – they allow you to get Close! Three – They are fun to photograph. Four – They are Large (again). Easy to get frame filling photos. They allow you to get close. Between their antics between pairs, seeing babies on their backs swimming by, their action going after other birds too close to their nest. It can go on and on. Also if you get a bunch fly by you, the sound of the Woosh from their wingbeats is cool sounding. Also watching them flapping like crazy getting airborne is fun to photograph.
