Black Swan - Photographs

 © All Rights Reserved
© All Rights Reserved

This is 1 of 3 posts of photographs that I took of a Black Swan at the Reservoir in Easton, CT this past week.

Perseverance paid off, and I was finally able to time my visit to the reservoir coincident with when this Black Swan was swimming around and close enough to photograph clearly. I've seen this Black Swan with a group of Mute Swans, but not all of the time. Usually I see only the Mute Swans.

I liked the contrast of the golden colors in these, which were shot as the sun was starting to set. The mottled Mute Swan is one of the cygnets that were born in the Spring, and was preening in this shot.

The first photo is my entry for the following:

Weekly Top Shot #112
Camera Critters #296
