    I was dead serious about it - your pix are good. Don't quit your day job but definitely try to take your photography to another level. The only problem is, when you turn an enjoyment into a job it is no longer enjoyable.

    I didn't know that black swans had white feathers on their wings. I do know tho that their beaks are wickedly sharp from feeding a tame swan at a resort several years ago. The same hold for seagulls.

    On the funny side I did get to watch pelicans at the Minnesota zoo chase a zoo patron who walked too close to them. It is funny to watch a bird with a pouched beak waddle chase someone on foot.

    And my Belgian my ex-husband had warned me about the geese in the park near his parents home in a suburb of Antwerp. Apparently if you didn't have a treat for them, they'd chase you & had been known to chase passersby & cause injury.

    Too many places, not enought time or birds ....

    Well they are fully feathered and 'adult-looking' by the time they migrate. So it's not last years babies. Looks like 3 mums hanging out together, maybe to complain about how hard motherhood is


    Good stuff, Peter

    Great photographs. I love the details; especially how you captured the color of the male Mallard.
