This is excellent Hendrik. So sharp, and so clear to see. We don't have grey ones here in NZ (well, I haven't seen any), so I find him very interesting. It is a good portrait of him, TFS

voici une super macro , bonne réussite, couleurs nettes
bravo et merci

Dag Hendrik.
Die staat er loeischerp op, alle details zijn uitstekend te zien. Kun je zo'n zwaan ook nog als spiegel gebruiken. Prima foto.

Hoi Hendrik
Lijkt wel of je elke dag een stukje dichterbij kan komen.
Deze staat er weer heel goed op.
Goed scherp en prachtige details.

Hello Hendrik
What a great shot of swan,
nice colors,perfect lighting.
but i don't like the framing.

Tanx for posting

Very nice and sharp portrait of swan. I can see that swans are one of your favourite birds. I made a photo of the group of swans and posted on trek nature few days ago. If you want to see it you are invited :-)
Best regards and thanks for great piucture

Fantastic shot Hendrik. Interesting object and pose. Excellent capture with good details.
Yes, I like it! Very well done

Hi Hendrik

Another great shot in your series, lovely composition and POV, with nice sharp detail and great colours, you can see the white feathers starting underneath.
