|white beauty, elegant and very quiet modesty. On the lakes near Falticeni city, in winter, a few mute swans wintering on the water surface that not freeze. It is a beautiful show of nature.|
The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and thus a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is also an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species.Measuring 125 to 170 centimetres in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange bill bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the bill

Excelenta captura ta de azi. Foarte bune culorile, detaliile si focusul.
Sunt pasari pe care inca nu le-am intalnit prin zona mea.
Intradevar pe la mine in Timis a venit primavara.
Ultimele mele imagini cu flori le-am surprins insa in Jud. Arad pe langa Savarsin.
Foarte buna captura ta desi ai avut doar 55 mm distanta focala. Nu vreau sa ma gandesc ce-ai fi reusit cu un obiectiv dedicat wildlife. Detaliile si culorile sunt foarte bune.
