Mute Swan(Cygnus olor) - Back lit Cygnet

Well you knew it wouldn't be long before I started with the Cygnet photos. First chance I have had to get back to my local lake in a couple weeks and I was met by four little stunners.

So from six eggs we have four cygnets that look about a week or so old. So not sure how many hatched, but last year this adult pair raised three successfully, so fingers crossed they can go one better this year.

They seem to be very cautious this time as they stuck to the edges of the lake the whole time I was there. Not great for getting decent photographs, but here I did manage to get this photo of one as it was coming through a sunlit part of the lake, so when I noticed they would pass here I set my camera to over expose to get this effect, plus a little help in post ;)

Will be back in a couple days to hopefully get some better photos of this fab four.
