  5. Beautiful...I feel badly about his leg ornament. Couldn't they find anything bigger to band him with?

  6. That damn banding is distracting to the artists eye for me. Lovely bird, They are tracked in migration I assume.

  30. Je me sens proche de ce cygne. Je me suis blessé à un genou et je porte une attelle qui me gène un peu pour pratiquer le land art. Je plaisante bien sûr car ce bel animal doit porter cette bague pour qu'on l'identifie, j'imagine et non pour soigner une quelconque blessure. Tes photos sont toujours un hymne à la vie et c'est pour cela que je les aime.
    Bien amicalement.

  32. A lovely series of shots Bob!:) I don't like the large ring on his leg, it's an eyesore on such a lovely creature..

  33. You are extremely talented in taking photos, Bob! It just amazes me to see the details of the feather, the close-up image and yellow and black beaks.

  34. Swans are beautiful birds! I love to watch them on the lake. You captured this one exquisitely! I especially like the photo with the water droplets falling from his beak.
