I picked this as winner because I just loved the composition, they often say wildlife needs to be looking at the lens but I just thought this photo showed a view of the mother which the cygnets probably see 90% of the time as they are growing. A sweet photo.

Thank you so much! You have some really lovely pictures in your gallery as well, especially of swans. These babies were born almost 2 years ago and this same mother and father had 6 more babies this year. I can't wait to what they have this year in the spring. Thanks again and happy shooting! :)

Thank you, sadly with all the rain this year this Mamma's nest and eggs floated away. so no babies for me to take pictures of this year. I enjoyed your gallery as well, I recognized a lot of the places you shot. Nicely done! :)

elainezammitduguay December 19, 2017
Thanks, and yes they are extremely cute, I just love going down to the waterfront every spring and checking out this swan and her new family each year. This little family was the best so far. Merry Christmas and thank you for your comment!
