The swans come in the winter to our lake, and are very, very shy. I stepped onto the beach (the ice went about 20 feet offshore) and they immediately became wary of me. So I fell back, gave them their space, and wished I had more focal length! This is a majorly cropped photo - in the original, this swan was pretty far away looking.
Location: Shuswap Lake, BC, Canada
Used: Canon 5D MKII, 70-200 f/2.8
Thanks for looking! :)

Great capture of the pose with the wings outspread and nice lighting too, it makes the water look wonderful.

Thank you. I wish I could have gotten closer - this image is cropped quite a bit. Or better yet, that I had a much longer lens haha
