[Richtlijnen voor opmerkingen] Opmerking van de fotograaf
A Myute Swan comming in for a landing on the ice. This species has only moved to Ontario in the last 60 years and now around 200 pairs live here on Lakes Erie and Ontario. They are around 150cm in length and the wingspan can grow to 250cm.

PP: I darkened the blues to make the swan pop out a bit before cropping and resizing for the web.

Hi Josh,
This reminds me of a plane coming into land in a heavy cross wind! Although the tips of his wings are missing, it doesn't bother my at all. You've done such a good job on the focus and exposure here. Really like the way he's keeping his head level and the way his webbed feet are splayed out behind him, an awesome POV to shoot from. Great work, well done.

This is a nice capture, TFS

Great catch of landing on 'side wind' and good PP

Hi Josh.
Amazing in-flight picture of so "heavy" bird. Its pose, wingspread, legs and so on are simply superb as well as the wonderful smooth and nicely coloured BG and spot on exposure. Bravo and best regards.

Hi Josh!

It's just a superb picture. And I had to smile when I saw it, it has a very pleasant humerous aspect. Isn't it funny how the swan holds his head, as if he would zero in on the runway. Sure, I also regret the cropped wing tips, but the picture still is great!

Kind regards
