A few weeks ago, Mum and I took a ride around a Dam and found some Black Swans. Unfortuntely, I didn't have my camera on me, as it was the second time I had got back on the bike in years. So the next day, we came back with my camera to find them, we had almost given up, when I looked back and spotted them.

Lovely shots of some very interesting looking swans... I've never actually seen a black swan before. Thanks for sharing! :)

Awesome series Chantelle. Very nice detail in a hard to photograph "black" subject.

agreed, your exposures are great as are the compositions. black swans are so interesting, I've only ever seen them in zoos as we don't have them in North America.

Love the detail in the feathers. The family portrait is cute, too.
