A Pair of Mute Swans

Post on November 24, 2014 Mute Swan Swan BirdsWaterfowl


Caught this pair of mute swans coming toward me while practicing duck-flyer at my usual hang-out. The front runner has a pond weed hanging off its bill and the one’s behind is looking the opposite direction. I thought it would make a rather interesting composition piece of the large and curved neck waterfowls and it turned out alright. My new camera, 7D2 did an incredible job keeping the focus on the front bird. It didn’t miss a beat on easy target like that.
