Image 011 is of an adult Whooper Swan flying against some nice fluffy clouds. I was at Slimbridge WWT in Gloucestershire when I took this image, and expected the white bird with a yellow beak flying towards me to be a Bewicks Swan as Whooper Swans are quite scarce here. I later realised, after editing my images that this indeed was a Whooper Swan. Unexpected bonus!!
