Superb getting the three in one image.
A great study of flight also.

A beautiful inflight Ed, they look so graceful, unlike some. A wonderful image.

Great formation flying image of these Bewick Swans, I am on Whoopers at the moment, have not seen any Bewick's this winter.

Great shot Ed but would possibly add to the dynamic of the trio were positioned slightly to the right of center.

They would have been ovine too fast for me, Ed, but you have coped well and got a fine crisp in-flight shot.

Superb shot Ed, I spent the day trying to capture birds in flight....not an easy task...Grin
Great image Ed, three in one picture, I'm lucky if I get one whole bird in my shots....they have usually flown by while I'm still trying to focus...
