About the Image(s)

While camping last week for the 4th of July came across this swan family. Was surprised to see 4 cygnets floating along with their parents. Wish we had been able to get closer. This was shot in DX mode with a 400mm lens with effective length of 600mm.

Unfortunately we didn't encounter them later in the day when we were on the water in kayaks. Also wish I had gotten a bit more of the water on the left side.
