Wonderful, Frank...probably my favourite observation of the swan.
Frank L Croston.: Swans are lovely, graceful birds I think, Ray, but can make mundane pictures, this one I liked.

Fabulous! I do like the way that they use use their feet as floats to help them slow down. Every time I see a swan, I always think of dear old Concorde.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, ah yes, Concorde, you must miss your trips....smile

Super photo - but always a great subject - I was amazed how far away you can hear them coming in to land!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mike, they do make a racket!

Great timing Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Got lucky, Anne, tell you when I see you. smile
Aren't they just amazing at take off and landing.
Frank L Croston.: Great to watch, Martin, I was pleased to capture it for once.
A lovely picture...if I am hypercritical then the top of the wing has lost detail....but i wish i had taken as good a shot
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill, it is, yes, but too be honest I was just pleased to get the shot...smile
Coming in on runway two-niner...
Frank L Croston.: Keep your belts on 'til the lights out....smile
They seem to know how to do it!
Frank L Croston.: Practice, Tom, practice...smile
