My spouse and I were able to visit the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary on Friday; her first visit. In addition to the most common swan – the Mute Swan – the sanctuary hosts Trumpeter Swans and an Australian Black Swan. The Mute Swan has an orange beak and the Trumpeter Swan has a black beak (although immature Trumpeter Swans have a red and black beak). I enjoy the majestic beauty of the swans, especially in flight. I hope you enjoy these swan images. As always, your comments are appreciated.
Number three in the countdown of top ten photos from 2014 is this trio of trumpeter swans. Panning to capture something in motion is often a combination of technique and luck, These three were traveling just above the pines which added enough interest to make the shot work . . . at least for me. 🙂
