[Richtlijnen voor opmerkingen] Opmerking van de fotograaf

The mute swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan and a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Eurasia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 cm (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange beak bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the beak, which is larger in males.

Hello Marius,
Great shot of this sizable group of Mute Swans while inflight. Your fast 1/2500 of a second shutter speed completely froze their wing motion revealing excellent detail. Love the beautiful color tones and perfect white balance.

Ciao Marius, fantastic group capture, perfect focus, great timing, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

That's real beauty, Marius. You ate lucky to see such beautiful species in Danube Delta area. Well focus and nice timing.
Best regards,

Lovely formation of these Mute Swans in flight, Marius.
The sun comes in from right direction to illuminate the birds in flight.
