I waited for this swan to come up from eating some weeds from the shallows of one of the lakes at Penshaw country park, hence the beads of water on his head. such a noble bird.

Very good photo, drops of water was something which I immediately saw, they really adds a nhobility to the bird!

Thanks for stopping by my gallery.
I appreciate the difficulty of capturing wildlife on 'film' and having the image come out halfway decent! You've done well here to get the bird's head in sharp focus. It's so clear we can see the swan's pupil! This is a dramatic presentation of a fairly simple subject. I like it.
I might have left a little more room above the bird's head when cropping the image. That aside, it's a really lovely photo.
