This off coloured swan came gliding slowly by some time ago at Lafarge on the water. He seemed almost tame compared to other swans. I always wondered if he / she may have been an outcast.
I'm thinking it may be a fledgling, or at least this year's birth. Just a suggestion Tony, sometimes, given the right conditions, a polariser can cut down the glare off the water, and enrich the colors in the subject.
If a youngster the colour should be more grey shame you cut his tail off but good movement on the water (looking at his head, might be a Hooper Swan)
Shame you clipped his tail Tony - kind of thing that happens to me.
Good close up Tony,
despite the tail !!
Maybe a hybrid--- sure is interesting-- One to watch!
bless lovely shot.
Thank you for comments and scoldings. The tail is a routine standard version so we can snip it a little for better composition. Looking up Hooper swan. TG
Ah - ha! Found Whooper swan in the Euro - birds book. Nope!...not a red / orange beak.
OK.. The book verifies it as Trumpeter swan. Now if a pro. - birder can just explain the odd colour tint..... TG
