These Trumpeter Swans were a real hit with our photography group. They swam the length of the pond posing for us.
After they had seen enough they took off. I was lucky enough to be photographing them when this happened.
All these images were taken with my 300mm lens with a 1.4 extender at 1/250 second, Sensia 400.
It's amazing how a camera can freeze motion.
Trumpeter Swans are always seen in pairs and mate for life.
