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.

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 (but the 2nd swan is a different one).

...Thought i'd post this one again here, to show you can achieve great exposure with a flight shot
Aw jeez, now your just braggin'!
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.
