[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Driving home after a shoot with a borrowed d300s and my old 200-400 (see earlier post what happened to my gear). I saw a group of whooper swans (cygnus cygnus) on the field. Walking closer I managed to get on the ice on a canal and thus get this low POV shot

enjoy your weekend

Pretty swan with sharp details.
