Such an elegant bird from the long necks through to the white plumage and feathering. I would imagine with the change in the weather up here on the Canadian Prairies that the trumpeter swan along with the ducks and geese will be arriving shortly either to settle in for the year or to refuel on their flights further north.

Fantastic capture Gary, The wings all seem to be in sync and on the way to Jan's neck of the woods.

Beautiful! In New England, all we get are mute swans and the controversy that follows them everywhere. The mutes are still beautiful. But they are bossy!

Magical capture of these graceful swands as they wing their way home for the summer.

We don't get many of these over here just some winter visitors from Russia.
Good capture but maybe a tad under-exposed.
Wot, no textures? Smile
