Taken from the Frederik Meyer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Mi. I'm pretty sure these are swans, the first shot there are three swans, one on the right nesting in the grass, the second just above the grass in center, the third more toward the left side of the shot. the second picture a bit easier to see. Didn't have the long lens on since I wanted the wider view.

If it pleases you then to hell what everyone else thinks!

This is one reason why I'm not inclined to get a M43, or DSLR camera, as you need the right lens for the right situation.

The shots are great by the way, but I'm not sure if they are swans, the neck looks a bit short to me.

Hey Rodger, I did have the long lens with me but I wanted the wider view. As for it being a swan.... I didn't think it was a swan either until I started to look into swans and ducks. The duck has an all orange/yellow beak where the swan, like the one pictured, has that black around the top of the beak.   It helps to have the full size picture also, this one is only 1500 x 1126.
