|The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and hence in turn 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 its being less vocal than other swan species, though it is not always silent.|

It is as if you placed a mirror behind the swan. the pose of these two swans are exactly the same. I like the tight framing and the shalow DOF you've used. The details in the first swan are great and your exposure is spot on. Maybe cropping the top is a good idea to get the thight composition more equal.
P.S. Don't be afraid to give critique as well.
