I have been working late today, and so a later than normal upload for me, this is an image taken a few weeks back of a Mute Swan.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful close-up shot, Phil. Superb detail, lovely soft lighting, very well positioned in the frame and so very nicely presented. I'm sure many members will find this a most appealing and attractive shot.
Ronnie.

I do like the image uploaded today but if I may be bold and say for me its a little teeny bit tight in the frame on the right (just a tad more of the neck) sorry I am being picky - good light and that droplet of water makes this a superb shot
