Love the attentiveness of the mother, you keenly captured her watching and listening to her young ones...too bad that small bit of reflection wasn't in the frame

Yeah I know :( that's what I went for and as I glanced quickly on my camera screen afterwards it looked like I had done so, unfortunately just missed out a fraction.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a private pond where swans raise their Sygnets in a safe and peaceful environment.
Time
I remember it was around 2pm as I was taking a stroll around the woodland then around the pond to see if there was any wildlife about and came across this Swan with its Sygnets.
Lighting
The lighting is natural, which led the picture to perfectly exposed.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 with a Sigma 150-500 lens, handheld as the light was sufficient so no need for a monopod.
Inspiration
I love anything to do with nature and just looked a fantastic shot when the Sygnets were following their parent.
Editing
Only thing I processed with this photo is the sharpness and a little of noise reduction to make it look that little bit better.
In my camera bag
I normally just carry my Nikon D7100 and my Sigma 150-500 lens as I mainly shoot nature and find this is the kit I usually use on a daily basis.
Feedback
Best thing I did was learning how to use full manual mode on my D7100, video guides on YouTube allowed me to learn quicker and easier, I believe this has helped drastically towards my photography and can help anyone who is willing to take the time to learn.
