Swans & Selfie - A77
4 months ago

Hi:

I braved the cold and went to Lakeview Marina where many swans are looking for food in this bitter weather.  It was 12F.

A77 with 18-250 Tamron.

Better than being in a "rocking chair".

Life is good - Blue Skies

With ear muffs as well.

Sony SLT-A77

Nice bird shots but the selfie is really great! No wonder the gals are always posing for you!

Take the scenic route! Life is too short to do otherwise.

All these white swans, and then an alpha male dressed in red! I can feel the cold!

Very nice cc. The color and detail are great.

They do not seem to be enjoying the weather there either.  If is was to be that close to those mallards there they would be doing about seventy miles an hour thinking i had an 870 pump instead of a a65 full automatic*

Doesn't seem it but we are at least on the tail end of this tough winter. Thanks for sharing-brian

A few days ago they had to rescue about 20 Swans and take them to a rehab place.

It won't be long.  Ha!

Thanks Brian
