After shooting the first set I had to go back. Here is set two just before sunset. Had to crank up the ISO a bit.


According to the neighbors these little ones could barely hold their heads up this morning and already they are up walking just a little. Isnt it amazing how fast they grow?

Hi Gil, what an outstanding and stunning series you have managed my friend Wow, but please be careful if you get too close, there are stories of the adult Swan attacking humans when they have chicks

John thanks for you wonderful words! I have been having my wife and others watch my back and trying to keep my distance and not upset anyone. The dad keeps getting inbetween me and the cygnets but I walk frequently around this pond and they are used to seeing me. (and I have fed them a couple of times)
