    Nice one Bobo.
    Still working on the children's novels I see
    #3 is my pick of the images. They look so elegant in flight.
    Cheers, Greg

    Nice series, Bobo. And I did not know besides a great photographer you are a comic book writer!! I really like the story. Picture-wise, #1 and #3 for me, although all are nice.

    Cheers...

    Thanks Otavio.

    Well people say that a picture should tell a story. The only difference is I try to make a series a story if possible. The catalyst was #5, it looks like a wedding ring (that is why I took the shot) so had to weave a story around that. Otherwise it would be just 2 web feet and a band ie totally unispiring.

    Hey Bobo, winter in the north making up love stories about swans. Hoping your spring is soon and your other birds return. Nice series my friend.

    Thanks Joe, it is improving but slowly.

    Thanks Harry - Francine was dressed in the usual swan clothes but she was too close not to take a head shot.

    Actually #1 and #5 are the same bird.
