Stunning capture Heather. The lighting really brings out the feather detail and brown colour in the neck. I love the little water droplets on the neck. Great shot.

Thank you so much Debra. This is why I love wildlife photography and I'm sure you can attest to how exciting these unexpected encounters can be.

Thank you so much Yves. After debating whether or not to come to the lake that evening it turned into something really special for me. I'll check in on them more regularly now and look forward to sharing if I get lucky..

Lovely picture Heather. Like very much the feeling out of it. Glad you had a so beautyful moment with the trumpeters. I am eager to see more.

This Trumpeter Swan came almost too close for the camera but not too close for me. He was making a quick pass beside the dock to join his mate on the other side. It was a real wow moment for me..
