Hello Annick,
This is a nice picture of this not that nice little one :) It is interesting to see how they look when they are so young. You caught nice details with good lighting and exposure. Even if this BG is almost the same color, I think that the subject contrasts nicely as it is well lightened. Well done!

Bonjour Annick
l'adolescence est une période ingrate, on le sait tous, il faut "souffrir" pour devenir beau :)
très bonne comparaison et joli cliché.

Hi Annick,
They do go through an awkward age, and you have captured it very well. They do turn in to beauties though at the end.

Hi Annick,
You made a good comparison, but sorry I have to say that he doesn't look that cute anymore, hope you'll have a chance to take another photograph when he becomes an adult :o) TFS

Hi Annick,
not as cute any more, but under the rough look lays a beautyful swan. Very good idea to follow up on this youngster, its interesting seeing the changes. Very well captured. POV, details and colors are very nice.
Looking forward sseing mor of him.

bonjour Annick,

je suis content de savoir qu'il sont toujours 3 depuis ma derniérre visite je y retourné dans 15 jour si le temps le permet merci pour le partage


Very impressive capture of this Cygnet, Annick.
The cropping is so perfect it shows a fine relationship between the subject and the water.

Hi Annick

Wow.... doesn't take them long to grow up. This young Swan blends in with his surroundings nicely. I like your composition showing the reflection. The light looks a little harsh, but you have managed it very well. I don't even want to think what has happened to it's siblings....... Nice work. :-)
