Excellent composition. The graceful shapes of the swans work well as a silhouette.

Best wishes from Scotland,

Cheers Joe, I also have a dozen or more shots that didn't work - that's the beauty of digital.

I notice you have some great bird pictures. Bob

Thanks Gabi and Blai, it took a while to get the right shot because one would dip underwater while the other was "on watch". Soon after this photo they were gone. Bob
