Black and White by Krys Bailey

Pair of Black-Necked Swans, native to South America. I first saw one of these critters on Lake Villarrica in Chile but it wasn’t a very cooperative model. The handsome boys in this photo reside at the Arundel Wildlife and Wetlands Trust, West Sussex, England.

    absolutely glorious capture, wondrous swans, and beautiful pair, and glorious colours. hugsxxx

  • Thank you Hilary! These are for some reason notoriously difficult not to overexpose while snapping – worse than the pure white swans!

    They are a rather spiffing fine example.

    Very good shot, great clarity. I must trundle down there, as soon as I am better, still off sick.
    I did not realise how long it takes to recover from pneumonia

  • Thanks CJ! Poor you! However did you catch Pneumonia?!!! Yes a trundle down there would do you good – I’ve taken out annual membership – its so peaceful and lovely on a nice day (when we have them)! ;o)

    Wow, these are such neat swans, Krys. Glad you were able to get them there, when you didn’t in Chile.
    Birds are such neat creatures…. I love them all.
    Nice shot.

  • Thanks Kimmie! I got off one shot of one in Chile. Yep, birds are fantastic! Don’t forget to tell Sidney that Auntie Krys said so!!! :o)
