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.
Pretty goose. Nice geometry.
Great natural shot.
Thanks! My model was fairly cooperative 😉
As much as I had a great winter in Phoenix, I really missed our birding excursion to the Texas Gulf Coast. Beautiful model!
Thanks. DH would love to go on that Texas birding excursion one day. Maybe next year.
Beautiful, that is my favorite thing to do also. Find the location and just hang out all day watching the wild life. I have yet to get photos of Swans.
Thank you. For me it’s easier with larger birds than the little ones that flit away so quickly. I’m not sure where one finds swans unless they are in a park.
Perfect triangle form! What a beauty!
Thank you 🙂
