A Mute Swan At The Celery Bog

The Mute Swans Of The Celery Bog

If you have ever been to the Celery Bog then you know that there are a group of Mute Swans that are just hanging around all of the time. They are there so much that I tend to just write them off. They are just always there, and you can only make so many photos of them swimming. This past fall though I had one opportunity where the swan looked right at me from not very far away. It was a different photo from what I have made in the past so I made the photo. I am glad that I did.

Go In With A Plan, And Be Prepared To Throw It All Away

I have talked on the blog before about how in sports I have a plan heading into a game. At times though you have to be prepared to throw it all away to go with what you are given. Photographing birds is much the same. My plan for the day had nothing to do with the birds on the water. The light was good, and they were plentiful so I changed my plan up. It worked with me making a few pictures that I have not made yet, and this photo of a swan that I didn’t have.
