A Study in Black and White....and Dirt by 

Nikon D300 ~ 80-400mm Nikkor Lens
f 5.6 ~ 1/200 s ~ ISO 2000
Taken at NorthWest Trek near Eatonville, Washington (US)
Usually the swans are out in the middle of the 500+ acres where they can’t even be seen. This time they got right up close and personal with us. They are such beautiful creatures, and it was so exciting to be so close, even though they spent most of the time with a considerable amount of dirt on their bills and looked a bit clownish!!

    A beautiful portrait of this Trumpter Swan, Teresa….I agree with you, swans are very beautiful ane elegant creatures and you have captured both of those qualities here so perfectly…nice you were able to get close to this one!

  • Thank you so much Kat!! And right after I had complained about not having any here I could get close to. They are so amazing!!

    LoL! Love the title, gorgeous capture!

  • Thanks bunches Berns!! Wouldn’t you know…I whine about no swans here, and then when I finally get close enough for some pics, I get a couple of clowns instead of those elegant sophisticated swans that do nothing but glide around on the water looking so beautiful!! LOL!! Oh well, these guys were an absolute blast to watch!!
