Swan Photos ...Raw and Edited


 One of my regular readers turned really great friend has
been telling me for a long time that she wants 
Note cards with a swan on them.


Finally, I was in the right place, 
at the right time....
with my camera and time to wait for Warren
to meet me.

Look down...see the ducklings and their Mama?
So cute!

These are the totally rough, 
unedited versions of the photos I took.
Next on the agenda is an editing session to make then 
cardworthy.
We'll see how that goes.

My question to you is which one(s) should 
I work with?
A multi card pack or is there just one that stands out to you?

I know this one is blurry but I threw it in any way.

Warren and I were having a debate about geese and swans.
I said it was a swan, he wasn't convinced....based on the tiny 
photo on the camera screen.
We showed it to our server at Pizza Hut who confirmed that 
this was, indeed, a swan as she made the motions for the long
graceful neck.
LOL
That was funny.

Thanks for the challenge, Vee.
I adore you, you know!

And now for some of these after editing....

Swans are so elegant and royal, and you don't often see them ~ which makes them special. Good catch!

Oh I feel the love, Becky! I will have to have John help me select our favorites. I know that I enjoy the close-ups; they are all so wonderful!

ALL are exquisite Becky ... but my fav's are the ones with the greenery & the shadows. Great eye, my friend.

Did you get my note about seeing you in June?

Have a wonderful day ~
