Elegant

This Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) drifts elegantly on the Glasson spur of the Lancaster canal; the water bird glides beneath an oak tree’s overhead canopy, casting its brilliant white head and neck plumage into shades of grey, but its Sun-burnt orange bill still blazes brightly, regardless of the leaf cover…

*Shot on a Canon 7d 18mp dSLR using a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 IS L lens with settings at ISO-400, aperture at f/4, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/250 seconds*
