Spoilt for choice at Abbotsbury a 600 year old (can you believe it) colony of mute swans in Dorset last summer.. this one’s coy pose caught my eye…

Nikon D60, Nikkor VR 18-200 lens, UV filter

f/5,6, ISO-100, tweaked in PS Els 6.. a bit more than usual… a first go at a bit of selective colour

Comments and processing critique or suggestions most welcome..
