Swan Taking A Bath!

By SocksAndStuff
I was standing on the bank of the River Trent close to Essex Bridge photographing Damselflies when I became aware of rather a lot of splashing in the water fairly close to me. As dogs are let off their leads to play in this section of the river I didn't think a lot of it until I glanced up and saw a Swan taking a bath in front of me! I went straight for it, all my settings should be wrong, but somehow I think I pulled it off. It was amazing!

You certainly have pulled it off even with your damsel fly settings. I think a faster shutter speed would have taken away the sense of movement in the shot.
You certainly know how to pull one off.
Have a good weekend
