Swan’s are one of the most magnificent & elegant water birds (in my opinion). Signets are equally as beautiful in their own fluffy way. Their soft grey down makes them look like little grey clouds floating on the water.
I managed to capture a few shots of this Swan & Signet, sadly not swimming together. The Signets are clearly a little older and more independent, so quite happy adventuring further away from their parents.
I spotted this little fellow (which I believe is a Bush Hen) wading through some Lilly pads. He seemed to be a little lost as he was constantly calling out to I assume his mother and other siblings who were further out on the pond. It Looked as though he went adventuring on his own (little rascal) then lost sight of his family group. Thankfully while I watched and photographed him he finally found his way back to the others.
Ponds and lakes seem to be my go to for nature & wildlife photography this year. Probably because I don’t have to venture too far to find these types of habitats. I’m quite lucky that live near a few nature reserves, forests, and parks. So I’m surrounded by many different habits to inspire my photography, I just need to find the motivation to venture out more with my camera when I have free time.
