Stricking colors here Heather. Your favorite birds sure made a point to give you a shot to remember during the long winter.

Thanks Yves.. they sure did. The water reflected the sky so perfectly that day and I was surprised at how vibrant it was. One of my favorite captures of them this year.

Terrific composition and lighting Heather. The swans look so nice against the crispy blue water. Gorgeous capture Heather.

Thanks Debra.. the lighting was just perfect that day and the sky tones reflected so nicely on the water. One swan was trying to rest so I got a few quick shots and left, I was really pleased with this one.

On driving by I came across this little group of swans taking a rest break on a marsh not far away from the lake so I quickly got some photos and left.
