These Whooper swans were taken on a frozen lake on the Japanese island of Hokkaido.
The distorted perspective is caused by the low angle of shot and the use of a fisheye lens.
Thanks for looking,
Lee

I don't think I can recall seeing a fish-eye used for wildlife, the result here is delightfully surreal.

An absolute stunner Lee. Love the perspective and pov on this. Might have just removed the part on the right hand edge to finish it off but thats very minor
