photoblog image Hello!

Hello!

An inquisitive cygnet, almost at my feet, taken in June this year. There were five youngsters in the family.

This shot was taken on auto, like all the others. I think it's perhaps the wrong angle ... but when there's a big daddy swan keeping an eye on what's happening to his offspring you don't move too quickly, in any direction.

I have to say I HATE SWANS. When ever i try to capture a close up I get snapped at. One of them took my classes right off of my face. I do like your capture though.... I'm really just jealous!
EJWilkins: I was lucky ... again. smileThese are used to people, but even so I wouldn't want to push my luck with them. I bet you've got even better pictures waiting for us to see.

Thats a quackin shot! Did you zoom or was he that close to you? Also, they look excellent in these wee pre-feather furry coats dont they?
EJWilkins: ".. quackin shot! " .. **grin*

It was 'that close' ... about eighteen inches in front of my feet, and daddy was following close behind. I moved very slowly out of the way after I'd taken the shot, just in case.
