This is gorgeous shot! I love all the details you've captured. The beaded water droplets, shimmer of sun on its feathers, the lovely range of colors of its beak... :love:
Well done! :clap:

Thanks very much :hug: I was so lucky to get this shot. I don't photograph birds very often and there was a lot of movement going on that day, so it was difficult to find something to focus on.

Thanks! I was so lucky with that. Every time I went to take a picture of this guy, he stuck his head underwater. I finally got the shot when he'd just resurfaced :aww:

Thank you :aww: I love how elegant swans are. The rest of the birds were all going crazy, chasing bits of food, and the swans just glided around like they were too cool to get involved in all that mess.

:PeachBlossom: by a-kid-at-heart  I think so too. Maybe swans are more calmer then the others are. I always found them to be such graceful charming birds.

A handsome brute, with feathers cleverly disguising the steel-conduit neck.

They're fucking terrifying when they're out of the water. Turns out they do not like small humans on mountain bikes but luckily small humans on mountain bikes can get out of the way quickly :D

There were some really cute ducks floating around when I took this photo but none of them wanted to pose for me. Every time I went to take a picture of one it stuck it's head under water and a duck's butt just isn't that photogenic :D
