I spent a few hours at my local nature discovery center over the weekend to try out everything I had learnt in Unit One. I am not one for birds in flight; I prefer to take portraits, as I love to capture their personalities and expressions. The Swan pictured was very defense and aggressive when I tried to use my 24-70mm so I switched to my 70-200mm then the same lens with a 2x TC. It was still aware of me and it gave me the look every time I pointed the camera at it. I checked and thankfully I was not near any nest and it turned out to be a young Swan who was a little nervous of people.

I like "the look" that swan has, also wound like to know what kind of mojo that swan put on her feathers?
