nice action capture Mike. the angle of the shot of this bird flying so low above the water is great. the capture of the light is great. the clarity is great. the image is balanced and eye appealing to the viewer. good eye and great job overall.

Very nice capture of the low flying swan, I like the hint of it's reflection too.
The swan is well placed within the frame, well focused, this image is clear, exposure is good, nice stop action , I like the wings position and that stretched out neck.
Well composed and presented!

A good looking nature image posted here! Your fine and classical composition captures us an enjoyable in flight moment. Like its wings. Exposure and sharpness are good. Nicely taken!

Outstanding capture of the swan so low during his flight. He's so low that it looks like a slight reflection of him in the water. I don't know much about settings in photography yet, but the water doesn't look as smooth as the bird's slender torso on. Such grace it has. And a beautifully detailed capture you did of feather details even with an inside between them showing.

Great in flight capture Mike - I have problem trying to get birds in flight so always impressed and this is impressive. Love the low over water composition and your exposure and colors are excellent. Good stop action focus.

These creatures certainly are some 'Big Assed Birds',aren't they?
Your photograph of this one 'trailing low along the surface' is very enjoyable to look at,Mike!

Mike,
A beautiful stop action picture of the Mute Swan flying low over the lake on which along with the blue sky above is reflected on the lake's glistening surface, while the sun highlights it's beautiful white plumage. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.
Susan

Your photo is beautiful all the way around! I love the simplicity, the colors, and the clarity. You left just enough of the green background so the viewer's focus is on that magnificent bird. Best of luck!

Great flight shot of this swan! I love the wing position and the way his neck is stretched way out. The beautiful blue water is a great background. Very nicely done!

Wow nice shot here! This bird is so majestic in flight. You have done a great job with the focus on the wings, many details to be found in the feathers. I like that you left the far shore in the shot, it makes for a great composition and adds nice depth to the image. The water is beautiful blue, giving the swan a nice contrast and we can easily spot the reflection. Well done! Thanks for sharing
