A solitary black swan glides across the brown waters of the Murray River, at the city of Mildura. The red beak of this swan seemed very brightly coloured.

Hello Murray,

You did very well with the exposition in the blacks... Nice pose of the swan. Maybe I would have preferred a lower POV but it is not always possible.

Is it a wild Swan?
