Lovely close-ups Nick.

Interesting to see how the colour is developing on the cygnet's beak

Re: Just a Couple of Portraits

We first saw this cygnet sheltering under his mothers (or fathers wing) on the nest site, so we have a scrapbook of the 7 or 8 months of his/her life on these pages.

There is quite a lot of pleasure in the marvel of the unexceptional.

I like both but I think the second shot stands out because of the water droplets and the contrast with the background. This is nicely out of focus avoiding distraction but gives enough information to put the bird in context.

Excellent

Cheers,

Re: Just a Couple of Portraits

Thank you John/Ellie.

I've been running "Tales from the Canal Bank" almost as a series of documentary threads for the best part of the year. Partly to support my contention that you can find locations 'on your doorstep', if you take your time and get to know them.

I'm not sure that I'll continue to document this location (at least here) in the coming year, maybe interest has run its inevitable course.
