Swans of the River Murray

By ColleenA
The Murray river has an abundance of birds including black swans. Version 1 was the first photo of them slowly gliding along and then took flight as we sailed past. I wasn’t prepared for them taking flight but did manage to dial up a higher ISO to get the lead shot

Quite rare to see black swans, but on an outing while in Devon we passed through the coastal resort of Dawlish, which has a stream running through its centre and into the sea and it's famous for its black swans - and we actually saw some! Two fine captures here Colleen, and showing them in their environment 👍
