It is difficult to get sharp images of flying birds against sunsets purely due to the low light levels available. Pushing the camera ISO to 1000 I managed to get 1/1000th sec to get these Pochard silhouetted against a colourful sky.

Image 080, is a request off a friend who wanted an image with pink in it… so here it is… a Whooper Swan flying against a very pink wintery sky 😉 . The sun was just about to set at this point, and due to there being heavy snow clouds covering the sky, the last rays of the sun sent everything this strange ethereal pink colour. Im just glad the Whooper Swan flew past!

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!!
