[Note Guidelines]

The mute swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan and a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Eurasia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 cm (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange beak bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the beak, which is larger in males.

Hello Marius,
Very beautiful photo of these Mute Swans in flight. Fantastic sharpness in beautiful colours. Not easy to get a good photo of a white bird in this sunlight. Excellent composition.

Ciao Marius, great capture of fantastic inflight couple, perfect focus, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Marius,

The graceful swans captured beautifully in flight. You have managed to keep a nice balance in the exposure even while capturing the white swans against the blue sky.

Have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Warm Regards,
