Number 1 really is very, very good. I have never photographed swans but shooting Little Egrets and Cattle Egrets in strong sunshine is VERY difficult, and I am lucky to get any feather detail.

Is this the same swan in all three shots? The beak looks grey in the third vs. the first two.

No. The bird in shot #3 is a juvenile, the other two are adults (or the same adult).

I was just about to write that ;) :cool: (but the 2nd swan is a different one).

Thanks all for the comments :cool: .

...Thought i'd post this one again here, to show you can achieve great exposure with a flight shot :D

Aw jeez, now your just braggin'! :lol:
And well deserved!
When I first started birding with a Digital P&S,. Swans were a favorite (and large) target.. I think I shot hours on end of blown out shots :) (ec or manual was tough on that little Olympus )

Great stuff.

Very nice series. I really like #1 and 2. Good job on the exposure, I know I have had some difficulties in the past.
