On His Way

I 'think' this is a young Berwick swan
Help me find my feathers please

most of the afternoon...slow? no a snail could have had it delivered faster!!!
Taken at Arundel Wetlands, hand held

Hope that I will have a 2nd version...sometimeSmile

Your timing is as ever so good, capturing the wing spread here so well.
But don't the wing feathers look bit tatty and ragged?
A happy New Year to you with many more fine shots in mind, Lillian.

Very good feather detail, Lillian, and nice action captured too.
I wonder if it will be able to fly with that wing damage.
They are so aggressive when they get into a fightSad.
