Taken with my partners camera Canon EOS300D, 1/2000sec f7.1, focal length 300mm

Taken on a dull day near the wet land centre in Welney on the 10mile road, which felt like 100miles to get too.

Did not stay too long as it was not a day to bring two 6 month babies oh well "maybe next time" I will trek up there again.

Hope you like it. I dont know much about this swan so sorry for lack of info about it.

I dared a WS, Demetrio. It is a great picture but I think it could be improved digitaly.

Nice shot Demetrio. Good action pose. Very nice point of view. Nice note.



Nice in flight shot, the light could have been better on its face... Removing a part on the noise could be good as well.

Dear demetrio, I think this is a whooper swan (cygnus cygnus), you did a good job against the bad light condition. TFS.

Hi Demetrio, nice shot and well captured. Good composition but there is some noise there, you could remove this easily. Good work.

Great capture, Demetrio. The detail is excellent. I especially like the pattern of the wing on the left. Lovely subdued colours. Well done.

Bel envol malgré une lumière pas très forte.


Bravo Demetrio c'est un cliché difficile à faire surtout avec le 300D j'ai le même problème avec le bruit avec le 350D le problème est résolu
Bonne année de plaisir quand même avec CANON

Very elegant picture. Congratulations.
Thank you! Best regards,

Wow, it flies so straight! Very interesting photo, what a pity the sky was too grey!

Que bela captura!
Excelente enquadramento e delicadeza no tratamento da imagem. O efeito da "moldura" está muito adequado.
Saudações fotográficas,

Except the sky is very good.
the bird flight is great.

Great capture.


Swans are one of the most graceful birds in the air, despite their weight! Maybe the A380 of the birds. I especially like thpics of landings and in flight. I think this picture illustrates why.

Hi Demetrio. Very fine photo of this large bird on the wing. It is not so easy to take such a good photo as this. Excellent result. TFS. Murray.
