Oh, I admire people who can even tell one sort of swan from another! Wow. All I would know is that this is a swan. Full-stop (or period). No more! But to know which kind of...!? Way cool.

And then I admire people who know how to WELL photograph a swan, and you do! I like both of these very much and the green in the first ought to fascinate me, but imagine: I like the second best, contrasty as it is. It is such a wow-photo with the bright white swan against the all black background. Plus I like its form of head and expression here --- looks kindly and mild-mannered ;).

I cheated, I took a photo of all the name signs so I could figure out what was what ;)

Ooops!

I just noticed this thread with the same title as my own posted 15 hours later! :lol: (Sorry! I didn't steal your title, honest!)

Great shots too! I love how you've managed to get low down to the waterline.:thumbup: Swans in sunlight aren't easy to expose for either. :x
