So much for my tough guy image. What a great set, gave you K tried to add LMNOP too but it wouldn't let me.
Keep us posted. The water shots are great, in particular the three head on and the two trying to eat same grass

Right now its a bit overcast. Given some sunlight I will be back over there. I dont know what "lmnop" means? I usually try to save the best for last - so I think thats my fav also...

I really wanted to capture them riding on Mom or Dad. But that didnt happen this time, the cygnets walked down to the water behind the parents. I had to crank up the ISO a bit for these as it was a bit cloudy. There were two of us shooting but I was the idiot trying not to fall in the water getting as low as I could. The geezer (thats me) had to use the tripod to get back up.... ha ha

I don't know how you keep getting better and better shots! I am ready for months of watching these cygnets grow into swans. Thanks so much, I am really enjoying these.

Thanks for your encouragement. I think the cygnets are getting used to me being around and that helps. Yesterday they came up to within a ft or so and I had to just sit there and watch because my 400's min focus distance is 9ft or so. We had a clear blue sky yesterday and light is the most important ingrediant for good pics....
