Mooie en scherpe foto van deze 'zwarte Zwaan', Hans.
Kan zien dat de wereld daar op zijn kop staat, met nu die jongen erbij.
Ik heb er eentje klaar staan (close up) welke ik gisteren maakte.
Officieel komen die zwarte zwanen uit Australia, Het zijn echte lange afstand vliegers.
Eeen van die twee, welke ik er vandaag op heb gezet had ijsblokjes op zijn borst veren, daar zat ie jankend aan te plukken.
Groeten uit een koud maar zonnig Berrege.

I was interested in this image, because I have posted similar today. Of course, I can't even compare my image to this masterpiece, but it is always nice to see that people have something in common with you.
Great image; I love the sharpness, composition and colours.
Lovely shot of a swan family.
Have a nice day,

This is a great capture of the Black Swan and her Cygnets, excellent feather details and colur and the water droplets are a nice bonus.
Well done my friend

Beautifully done here Hans! Crisp, sharp, well composed and well metered ... what else to say. It's great work!
Good morning Hans
You visited one of my favourite places. I love the bird life and now is a great time to visit and see all the youngsters. A lovely shot of the family. Nice natural colours. Are you going to visit the Zoo? It is right beside Western Springs. There are three Tiger cubs there. Another lovely day ahead. Hope you have a great New Year and don't drink too much beer!
Lovely shot Hans - maybe a bit more space in front of the trio would look a bit better though.
I do like how their heads are all bowing down to the water but at different angles - quite elegant, like poetry in motion.
PS Enjoy your trip S/E to Waihi today

Lief, mooi van kleur en scherp; op een heel goed moment genomen als je naar de kopjes kijkt.
Een prettige jaarwisseling dadelijk want ik heb begrepen dat jullie de eersten zijn.

Another good bird picture - swans seem to be your signature subject matter at the moment ;-)
Excellent colours and details in the plumage and yet again a good low down POV. Composition is possibly a little cramped, although to give space to the right would have meant sacrificing some of that close up feel.
Thanks for sharing
