Flight of the swan

By moiral
Another day when I love my work. Out walking at Loch of Kinnordy today. After having cut my hand and twisted my ankle climbing over barbed wire fences, limping through ploughed fields, I was lucky enough to be walking along the road when this swan took off from the field. It would have been rude not to capture such a beautiful bird. I like the shot where the wings are upswept and you can actually see the the bone, like an Xray. Getting a bit carried away now Wink Anyway hope you like it.
Loch of Kinnordy is just to the west of Kirriemuir and is purely a wildlife reserve. During summer there was an osprey there, which of course I missed. A manmade loch, it is lovely just now with all the autumn colours, and of course loads of geese.

Sue, thanks for your comments. This is novelty for me to do this to shots, that is why I like to do it. No doubt when I learn to do something else, I will flood people with that. Only problem is that I delete so much that I am not happy with, I will run out of shots. Smile Moira
