[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Having a trip out to our local reserve I came across this feeding Mute Swan and it was near enough to get a portrait picture. I do not think it has reached adulthood yet judging by the feather colouring.

Hi Peter, sorry I haven't been around much lately, I'll try to catch up on your latest shots. Very nicely focused close up of the Swan. Light very good with great exposure giving fantastic detail on the feathers and head. Very nice profile. The Swan has a very orange beak which indicates that it is an adult, albeit a young one. Nice work.
