It has been below zero degrees for weeks now, and the poor birds have their problems finding food. I found a small pond in the heavy sea ice, where a small group of swans find their titbits.

A great composition! The sharpness and DOF are perfect. The cold is very visible in the blue tones of the photo - must be a hard time for the birds...

Well captured, good focus and excellent color tone!
It's interesting pose of swan at right side.
And, it's better about contrast between the front with clear image and the background with blurred ones.

This is a nice portrait of these two swans. The icy water compliments there white feathers nicely. The closeup sharpness of the birds looks nice against the slightly blurred backdrop.

As always - very nice picture and nice colours.
However I would have liked more of the scene above the swan to the right.
