This image shows a Whooper swan calling out. This is part of their mating courtship which involves them trumpeting and flapping their wings.
The shot was taken on a frozen lake on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.
Thanks for looking,
Lee

PS - Big thanks to Brian, john, Ade and Mandy for the recent user awards. Really appreciated Smile

Stunning, the detail is superb and the capture of all the differing shades of white shows the expert touch.
