Watery Wednesday #18

This isn't the best shot but I really like it because I actually got just a little of the water splash as this swan brought it's head up out of the water.

What a beautiful swan - I don't know if I have seen a swan like this. On the weekend I took photos of all black swans. Great photo

I thought this was a great picture, especially when enlarged. The water drops are very artistic.

It´s like half black and half white? Truly strange. Thanks for showing.

He looks so stern - maybe he really didn't want you taking his picture. Like the seals at the WW site as well. Nifty.

will yothers said...

Great shot! I admire your photography---all of it. This swan looks so regal here---one can just imagine him defending his territory.

The Birdlady said...

Good job....he's a beauty.

Natural Moments said...

I think it is fun to capture water spraying or dripping off of the birds too. I love how it flows off of them so easily.

Judy said...

I like the way the head and neck sort of fade into the background. There is a moment of startle, before the eyes focus on the swan. Thanks for sharing!
