Beautiful sight.....I see WWT Martin Mere are offering a romantic Valentine night experience with a difference....Strolling through the grounds by lantern light to experience the haunting sound and romantic sight of over 1500 Whooper Swans on the Mere and afterwards a delicious 3 course meal in the new Mere Side Cafe....Sounds right up your street Muddy....:>)

I have photographed these birds sooo many times at Martinmere but this one is stuning in its simplicity. Excellent detail and exposure with a nicely composed flock. Brilliant work, love it!

How could I miss this photo? It is absolutely unique. It looks more like painting then a photo.

11 Mar, 2012

 

Thank you Katarina. You can understand how these birds and other wildfowl inspired Sir Peter Scott to paint.

16 Mar, 2012

 

I do not know Sir Peter Scott. But I know swans :)

This photo was taken at a nature reserve developed by Peter Scott in Lancashire, England. Whooper Swans, Geese and Ducks come to spend the Winter here in their thousands. A wonderful experience to see and hear.

Looks like the graphics artist Escher's flying bird art. Same artist who does the staircases going nowhere. Wonderful picture.
