Inspired by Sarah, who is the master of Swan photos--- visit http://tregatti.aminus3.com/---I have been on the look out for some swans I can photograph up close.

I found a domestic group not four miles from home, but their most exciting moves are grooming maneuvers...so, I'll leave the wild take-offs and landings to you, Sarah. Thanks for setting the bar so high. ;-)

@john4jack: Those swans do know how to toss the water around. I was so glad to catch it. Thanks for your comment!

Like the pattern of the water trail - you know, I did think that I clicked on Sarah's blog there for an instance... Well captured.
