Sometimes you go looking for the shot and sometimes it comes to you. We went birding yesterday, as that’s DH’s thing and he was past due on having a pick of where to go photographing, so off we went to his favorite ponds where there are always ducks, geese, herons, egrets, turtles and a pair of swans.
The swans were nesting in one of the ponds so we slowly walked down as close as we dared without startling them and took some shots. I noticed that one of the swans was busy feeding its face in the remains of the waterlilies and was swimming in one direction. I observed that as he was doing this he was weaving between the lily stalks, so I sat at the edge of the pond and waited until his (taking a guess it was Mr. Swan and that Mrs. Swan was keeping the eggs warm) head was framed by the stalks.
And this is what I got while patiently waiting and actually enjoying the peace of sitting by the pond watching the swan.
