Hi Everyone,

These two up to date shots of the cygnets I posted back in July.

V1 Portrait

V2 Colours are starting to change to White.

ISO400 - F6.3 - 1/1600 - 500mm - Tripod.

Nice large....

Thankyou all for your comments and votes on Another Bluey.

Have a great day.....

Ian

Both very pleasing compositions, Ian. Excellent combination of colour & detail in each. V2 taken from an unusual, well-observed angle. Good work indeed.
