Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 15th March, 2011)
Doesn't the swan look majestic. Another lovely shot of one of our many beautiful birds.
swan should of turned on idiot lad,whats the parents thinking of letting him paddle at the side of a swan.yet another example of no parental control
Absolutely fantastic shot, nice one!
Phil you have certainly caught the moment. With the sun showing the wings of the swan in a very interesting pose, shows all the swans feathers in detail. The boy is looking a little worried as well. With movement by all the birds in the picture. Calming picture of family life at the waters edge. Well done you.
The lad's safe, peterp - the swan can't see him. He's wearing camouflage.
peterp. I can't see any harm in what the boy is doing, he's just observing. I bet his feet are cold though lol.
I suspect that the boy is not as near to the swan as the photograph would suggest. Using a 'long lens' can often have the effect of compressing the perspective.
Great photo :)I love how you've captured the swan's elegance, great details on the wings!
Looks like a fantastic and popular place to go bird spotting!
I was wondering if you can submit your own photos on Wigan World?
Waiting for a comment from Chuck. It's another bird.
Get your own camera out and gives us something better.
Maybe Chuck is out and about taking photos....lolol
great photo... looks like the lad is walking on water lol... :)
If i remember correctly the lad was about 10ft away from the Swan
Hold that pose!
It looks like a Liver Bird.
