CYGNUS OLOR is Binomial Name for a MUTE SWAN and thus the title says it all.

Captured in RAW as I was trying to show the SWAN in her/her nature world without a care in the WORLD for me being the photographer and the only one around 9:30 to 10:30 at Park in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario (Canada.)

As for corrections fixed the sight error in the COLOUR BALANCE in Camera-in-the-RAW and then resized to 600 x 401 px, and lastly applied the UNSHARP MASK till it looked right to me.

Thanks.

And what type of SWANS do you see in RSA as I don't remember any in the June-August of 1976 while I was staying with my Grand-parents but then again I was only 10 years old. Since I remember seeing lizards and the large ant hills.

Have a wonderful week,

Timothy

Why are you including those dead reed stems? They really add nothing to your image.
