Bertrand, This is beautiful picture. I really like the small droplets frozen in mid-air and the symmetric formation of the wings.

Hi Bertrand,

Superb in-flight shot, excellent POV and the pose is great as the light reflects through the Wings to show us all the layers of feathers, nice detail with the water droplets falling from the Swan and great natural colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Bonsoir Bertrand,
Ton cygne est dans une position de vol parfait. Et les petites goutelettes ajoutent au charme de cette image.
Bonne soirée
