    I was looking through some Nature images I've taken over the last 6 months and noticed I have quite a few Swans and Squirrels so I thought I'd put them in a couple of posts here. All taken at a park in my home town in the midlands (UK).

    I'm unsure about #4 as a photo but just love the detail. I wish I could have uploaded a bigger / less compressed image but I still havent got round to sorting out my PBase account yet.

    I think all were taken with the D2H and the 80-200mm F2.8 (v4)

    Here's the earliest bunch:

    Edd,

    These are wonderful shots. Kinda makes me sad to see them right now because they remind me of Sandi's Sydney, but they are really good.

    Well done. :wink:

    Nice shots, Edd! I was thinking the same thing as Frank when I saw the first shot - that looks a lot like Sydney. Anyway, great captures!

    Excellent EDD.

    I dearly love Swans.

    Could win a few contests with these EDD :>)))
     
  5. Not too many things cuter than a cygnett at that stage of their life. Really nice images EDD.

    Thanks for responces guys, I'm glad you like them. I will keep taking the local swans and if I have enough for another set I'll put them up.

    Not sure what kind of contests I could enter them in, if anyone knows of any give me a shout. Thanks for thinking they're good enough for that Gale, you've made my weekend =)
