Swanning About On The River

By Trev_B
A Mute Swan form yesterday....

I thought I would get out just armed with a 50mm lens, and a camera of course, to see what I could get. The Little Egret was perched on a rock.... too far away! A kingfisher perched not 30 foot away... by the time I entered stealth mode to get close enough he got bored of waiting and flew off. So the only thing left was a Swan..... Hay Ho.

Have a great weekend...

Trev mate back to the good old days before ZOOMS, I have the same lens and get cracking results and so light to use, what I find using this is! It gets you to move around instead of letting the lens do it for you, great exposed image with excellent reflection.
