Fantastic Amanda. How did you manage to get so close? I need a 500mm lens as most of my "models" refuse to let me do close-ups. john
Unfortunate timing too as a swan close-up has just won POTW. We're off to see the Lizard~~the wonderful (sic) Lizard of Oz~~
Chappo, it's not a swan that has just won, it's a goose. Gosling = baby goose. I appreciate the kind words but this isn't even any where good enough for potw. As for getting close, the secret is to be patient and they come to you. Thank you, Bridget, always a pleasure to hear from you. My Gallery
Perfectly focused from the tip of the beak, nice shot.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
awww... this is so cute! He/she does look rather quizzical
Lovely close-up. Well done!
