Getting The Bird: How To Photograph Birds With Long Telephoto Lenses

Swan Box

By Fefe
Taken last October, same swan as Naws , and while I am at it, the colour version of 'Naws' in Version 1, I promised to upload at some point and never got around to it.
The lead is quite a big crop and a slight rotate to get a full frame of swan, I hope you like the set.

Massive thank you to everyone for the response to my Sparrow hawk image last week, really appreciated!

V1 is fabulous with that wonderful light catching so much of the swan, Diane.

Superb. 🙂🏆

I had some trouble with your crop until I saw the version (which I like very much). Understood it all then!

A delightful avian abstract which made me look twice.

Thanks for sharing

I like both, Diane. the lead for its originality of composition and the version for the light and colour. Though I must admit to preferring the clean whites of the earlier B&W upload; comparing it with the colour one, perhaps a tiny bit of burning in on the throat to bring out the detail.
